Event description

Description

To accompany the exhibition Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall, The Drawing Center will host a series of "Draw Jams," an ongoing collective drawing session that Eddie Martinez initiated with artist Brian Belott. Join Martinez, Belott, and a group of Draw Jam regulars for the first of two evenings of spontaneous drawing and exchange.

__


Eddie Martinez’s drawing practice blends seamlessly with his daily life as the New York-based artist carries pen and paper with him on the subway, to the doctor’s office, and to restaurants and lectures, among other work and leisure events. Stylistically evocative of mid-century abstraction, Martinez’s drawings bring their own complexity, plugging a rotating cast of characters into raw, vigorously-drawn landscapes: cartoon ducks, oversized eyes, coiled snakes, and anthropomorphic blocks of color are among his itinerant motifs.

In his Brooklyn studio, Martinez maintains a “drawing wall,” wherein sketches ranging in size, shape, and material serve simultaneously as a source of inspiration and a data bank for the artist’s incessant imaginative output. The Drawing Center’s exhibition Eddie Martinez: Studio Wall, brings the drawing wall to the museum, combining thousands of sketches—some of which the artist will exchange for others over the course of the show—with larger drawings and paintings. In this way, the exhibition allows viewers to observe the interconnection between all aspects of Martinez’s practice, revealing an artist for whom drawing is the constant, ever-changing materialization of imaginative life.
