Comparing the studio to a terrarium of sorts, Marti believes the conditions in the studio have to be just right for inspiration to strike. Exploring those conditions, Hothouse features several new works by Marti and works unearthed from his rural Pennsylvania studio as well as the objects he surrounds himself with to fuel his creative process.
