Eddie Martinez “EMHK19” at Perrotin, Hong Kong

Perrotin Hong Kong is pleased to present Eddie Martinez’s second solo exhibition with the gallery following “Blockhead Stacks” in Tokyo in 2018.

Eddie Martinez is a Brooklyn-based artist whose poignant approach to painting combines figuration with abstraction, using various combinations of media–oil, enamel, spray paint, leaves, thumbtacks, baby wipes–to introduce texture imparting his candid and uninhibited creative process.

Unlike many artists for whom drawing is a preliminary act, Martinez sees drawing as the creative exercise pervading his oeuvre, a testament to his incessant drawing habit. In many of his paintings, Martinez enlarges and silkscreens his drawings onto canvas, bringing in further layers of life with an inimitable palette of colors.

Martinez’s sculptures translate his exploration of line, composition, and color into three dimensions. Made from prosaic found objects cast in bronze, the sculptures find reference in assemblage and the readymade, denoting his playful study of physical matter and material culture.

at Perrotin, Hong Kong 
until 29 June 2019
