Abby Martin on Breaking The Set and Her Work at RT
Published on Aug 27, 2013
Abby Martin has become a new media superstar with her whip smart take on truth telling and cutting through bullshit to deliver news on RT. We invite her to discuss being labelled as propaganda for Russia, the 9/11 truth movement, Dr. Ron Paul and his son Rand’s presidential bids, and much more on this interview with Buzzsaw.
When Abby Martin began streaming her thoughts and emotions through a paint brush at 19, she discovered her niche. The elaborate and intricate detail that flows from her onto the canvas in a perfect distribution of dots and swirls reflects this introspective artist’s ability to juggle and organize the chaos of the human mind into a comprehensive piece of fully charged beauty.
The explosive energy of each piece calls to life with psychedelic force the different realities Abby treads as she deconstructs the world around her in constant search of balance and truth. Whether reflecting on the natural world or the manmade world, the awakening or deadening of consciousness, cultural controlling dichotomies, the power of the mystic and all that is unknown, the condition of the social, the construction of the economic, or the corruption of the political, Abby’s work displays an intense passion for life and her deep desire to engage others in her vision.
Over the past seven years a variety of different venues in San Diego and the San Francisco Bay Area have exhibited Abby’s paintings. She is now living in Washington DC hosting her own television show ‘Breaking the Set.’
