Chris Martin

Edited with text by Dan Nadel. Text by Glenn O'Brien, Nancy Princenthal, Trinie Dalton.

"Smoker" (2011) is reproduced from 'Chris Martin.'

Drawing on inspirations ranging from Buddhism and American modernist painting to psychedelia and Amy Winehouse, Brooklyn-based painter Chris Martin (born 1954) “lets the paintings make themselves,” with often generously scaled canvases characterized by flat yet textured planes of bright, saturated color, frequently incorporating found materials and highly personal paper ephemera. The emphatic geometries of his paintings, which indicate his attachment to Piet Mondrian, are another signature touch, conveying a genially brash New York energy (Martin’s practice came of age in 1980s New York, which saw the explosion of the East Village art scene, led by Keith Haring). This first full overview on Martin collects essays by Glenn O’Brien, Nancy Princenthal, Trinie Dalton and Dan Nadel.

PRAISE AND REVIEWS

BOMB

Labyrinthine paints at times avoke constellations or maps, with glued-in found images serving as quasi-cultural guideposts in an imaginary place that neither claims nor denies its existence.

Mojos, mandalas and divining tools: Chris Martin

Mojos, mandalas and divining tools: Chris Martin

"Double Frog Midnight" (2010) is reproduced from Skira's big, bold new Chris Martin survey — the first comprehensive monograph on this quietly influential Brooklyn-based artist. "Call him what you will," Glenn O'Brien writes. "Art is magic. Chris Martin is a magician. He creates mojos, mandalas and divining tools, the sort of art made to conjure. He's made a planetary annex and you can have one too. He's got the goods. Control panels for nature. He has been everywhere. He has seen everything. He has knowhow. He's got pizazz. He's got it going on. Chris Martin is the Dali Lama's favorite painter." continue to blog
