CAMERON MARTIN

18 MAR — 30 APR 2016

CAMERON MARTIN (B 1970 IN SEATTLE, USA), WHO LIVES AND WORKS IN BROOKLYN, STUDIED ART AND SEMIOTICS AT BROWN UNIVERSITY, PROVIDENCE, AND PARTICIPATED IN THE 2004 WHITNEY BIENNIAL IN NEW YORK. IN EUROPE, HE IS STILL CONSIDERED AN INSIDER TIP, WHILE IN THE USA HIS OUTSTANDING REPUTATION IS BORNE OUT BY A SOLO EXHIBITION IN THE SAINT LOUIS ART MUSEUM AND THE AWARD OF THE JOHN SIMON GUGGENHEIM MEMORIAL FOUNDATION FELLOWSHIP IN 2010. CAMERON MARTIN TEACHES AT THE MILTON AVERY SCHOOL OF THE ARTS IN THE FAMOUS BARD COLLEGE IN NEW YORK STATE. AFTER MORE THAN TWO DECADES OF CONCENTRATION ON COLOUR-REDUCED LANDSCAPE PAINTING, HIS WORK UNDERWENT A RADICAL CHANGE OF STYLE TWO YEARS AGO, SINCE WHEN HE HAS PAINTED SMALL-FORMAT, ABSTRACT, VIVIDLY-COLOURED WORKS WITH GEOMETRICAL PATTERNS. FOUR OF THESE ARE DISPLAYED FOR THE FIRST TIME IN THE UPPER STOREY OF THE GALLERY, OFFERING A UNIQUE REFLECTION OF THE DIVERSITY OF CAMERON MARTIN'S NEW ŒUVRE.
