Chris Martin: Drawings

Published by PictureBox
Edited by Dan Nadel.

One of America’s finest abstract painters, Chris Martin (born 1954) explores the fertile areas between sophisticated formalism and the visionary joy of outsider art, making abstract painting look enviably effortless. For this massive volume, Martin and Dan Nadel have assembled a massive compendium of Martin’s drawings from the past 30 years, presenting them chronologically so the reader–viewer can follow the artist’s continual pursuit and discovery of new forms--from sound waves to mushrooms to Tantric arches to the iconic visages of James Brown and Sigmar Polke. For Martin, drawing is an end in itself that also often leads to themes he later reprises and explores in his painting. Taking its design inspiration from the artist’s books of Dieter Roth, Drawings acts as a flipbook of discovery, one that charts Martin’s artistic development over the past three decades.

Chris Martin

Chris MartinIt's always exciting when an underrepresented artist receives notoriety that's long overdue. Especially a humble, even mystical artist's artist like Brooklyn-based Chris Martin, who has been working steadily on an inquisitive, iconic and strangely illuminating body of paintings, drawings and collage works for more than 30 years. This week, PictureBox released a gratifyingly monumental collection of Martin's drawings, which weighs in at just over 620 pages and features a provocative essay by Peter Lamborn Wilson, who manages to evoke Hindu Tantric paintings, psychedelia, outsider art, Siberian shamanism, Theosophy, Voodoo, Nietzsche, Redon, Wilde, Blake, and more.
