This publication accompanies Brooklyn-based painter Eddie Martinezís (born 1966) third solo show at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, featuring new paintings which combine signature figurative elements such as bug-eyed humans and eclectic headgear, with gestural, abstract blocks of color. Martinezís latest group of paintings, many executed during the lockdown of 2020, reveal a new mastery of his skills in joining together abstraction and representation in painting. Included in this publication is Martinezís series of White Out paintings, in which he layers white paint over colored lines to create summarily depicted yet familiar figures like heads and flowers in a vase. In her essay for the catalog, Phyllis Tuchman writes, ďIn the context of so many colorful canvases, the White Outs stand out as exercises in looking as we peer to discern what has been portrayed.Ē

Brooklyn-based artist Eddie Martinez (born 1977) has received much critical acclaim over the past few years. Cartoonish and energetic, his expressive paintings (both abstract and figurative) often employ a loosely fixed cast of forms--such as flowers, tabletops, shoes and, most recently, bent yellow columns and white horizons. These works conjure the rough, vivid execution of a Basquiat, a Gorky or a Guston. Martinez works in series, reprising these forms over several (usually large-scale) canvases. This book, the first substantial monograph on the artist, documents the last six years of Martinezís output, reproducing 200 works in color and grouping them thematically, by animals, flowers, tabletops, still lifes and portraits.
