Oklahoma-based painter Marty Avrett is a Professor Emeritus at Oklahoma State University, and he creates abstract and representational paintings informed by natural landscapes. Regarding his work, Avrett states "Formally, my concerns have to do with spatial illusions, light and its quality, color and surface. I would classify myself as a colorist who is trying to arrive at a kind of personal truth about the images he makes."
