After closing 2008 with a successful showing at Art Basel Miami Beach, abstract painter and alumnus Chris Martin (BFA 1992 Fine Arts) journeys north to present a lecture at SVA about his work on Tuesday, March 3 at 6:30pm. Combining visual and musical influences to explore color, form and texture, Martin’s drawings and paintings on paper incorporate diverse materials such as crayon, fabric, aluminum foil and album covers. The lecture will take place at 133/141 West 21st Street, room 101C and is presented by the BFA Fine Arts and BFA Visual and Critical Studies Departments.
In addition to this opportunity to hear from Martin, his work is on view at Mitchell-Innes & Nash, 1018 Madison Avenue. The solo exhibition “Works on Paper” runs through Tuesday, March 17, with more than 40 of Martin’s works from the last 20 years on display.
