In Thanksgiving Martinez and Brosseau meet as friends and mutual admirers. Each presenting 7 new works that reflects on their current whereabouts on the artistic map.
Eddie Martinez (b. 1977, US) has created 7 works on paper. In these new works, Martinez’s figuration is lending space to abstraction, while remaining distinctly Martinez. Martinez has developed a very concise end engaging visual vocabulary over the years and it is remarkable to watch it expand. His work takes influence from abstract expressionism, the CoBrA movement and neo-expressionism. Artist movements celebrated for their skill and innovation within the fields of drawing and painting. Like these, the work of Martinez is instantly engulfing, touchingly honest and original. Eddie Martinez has recently shown with Peres Projects in Berlin, Patricia Low in Genova and Saatchi Gallery in London.
Jamison Brosseau (b.1976, US) has created 7 new paintings on panels. Brosseau’s work hoovers with ease somewhere between figuration, abstraction and the geometric. Humans and things are concentrated into iconic shapes and silhouettes that recount the essence of their former presence. In this sense Brosseau’s tableaus are about pattern recognition, and if you let yourself wonder, there are many stories to be experienced.
Jamison Brosseau has recently shown in New York with Dodge Gallery and Participant Inc.
