THE NEW YORK TIMES May 23, 1997 ART IN REVIEW Art in Review By GRACE GLUECK Knox Martin 'Early Work' Janos Gat Gallery 1100 Madison Avenue, at 82d Street Through Sept. 30 Knox Martin arrived on the scene in the early 1950's, a young acolyte drawn to the work and climate of Abstract Expressionism. A couple of early paintings here show how much he was in its sway, particularly ''Susanna and the Elders'' (1953), a de Kooning-esque romp of bold, energetic forms in black and white marching diagonall...

On the Front Lines by Jillian Russo | June 9, 2015 Since the passage of the GI Bill during World War II, thousands of veterans have studied at the Art Students League of New York. Returning World War II veterans rejuvenated the League, making it a site of experimentation and an incubator for postwar artists. The GI Bill made an art education accessible to those who might not otherwise have become engaged in the field, and the influx of students strengthened an ambitious community. O... [more]

“Paintings of Women by the Handful,” by Benjamin Sutton, L Magazine (September 29, 2010)  
by
Knox Martin at Woodward Gallery September 15th, 2010 - November 13th, 2010
Posted 7/30/16
“Paintings of Women by the Handful,” by Benjamin Sutton, L Magazine (September 29, 2010) Since very nearly the earliest chapters of art history, women have been among artists’ two or three preferred subjects (or objects, following feminism’s reframing of that history). Two new solo exhibitions three doors from one another on Eldridge Street attest to the feminine figure’s inexhaustible appeal. For Knox Martin, the female form remains a sensual muse that he dissects... [more]

Knox Martin at Janos Gat: A review of Caprichos by Edward Leffingwell - Art In America, October 2003

Knox Martin at Janos Gat Gallery April 29th, 2003 - September 12th, 2003
Posted 4/19/14
Knox Martin at Janos Gat: A review of Caprichos by Edward Leffingwell Knox Martin named his new series of generously scaled, unframed drawings "Caprichos" for the moralizing, didactic, fever-dream etchings of Goya that first attracted him as a child, 67 years ago. But there is substantial whimsy to Martin's recent phantasmagoria of animal and human forms. Ranging from roughly 2 to 7 feet on a side, they are confident, loosely drawn in pen and ink, crayon and watercolor on thin sheets of paper,... [more]

Knox Martin Shines at LGTripp Gallery | Philadelphia In a theater in the Old City neighborhood of Philadelphia on Saturday afternoon, we gathered shoulder-to-shoulder and to standing-room only capacity, to hear Knox Martin talk art.

He gifted us with the knowledge of Joan Miró, influenced by the Du... [more]

Knox Martin - WOMAN: BLACK AND WHITE PAINTINGS, A review  
by
Knox Martin at Woodward Gallery September 15th, 2010 - November 13th, 2010
Posted 1/30/13
Knox Martin - WOMAN: BLACK AND WHITE PAINTINGS White light radiates from the paintings in Knox Martinʼs exhibition “Woman: Black and White,” shown at Woodward Gallery, September 15 – November 13, 2010. For almost sixty years white has been a metaphor of light and an integral part of Knoxʼs art. Now, white illuminates not only the surface of Knoxʼs paintings but the depth of a masterʼs lifelong dedication to creation. “My subject matter is creation.” Knox proclaims. “Creation is man made.” ...

It is a record of the confluence of Martin's two consuming passions: creation, and the image of Woman. He experiences both as transcendent, and in part, ahisto... [more]

The work showing at Woodward Gallery, “Knox Martin- Woman: Black & White Paintings”-----The Black and White paintings of Knox Martin give to and take from the drawing that he does all the time, as well as the interchange between large paintings, portraits and sculpture. Martin quotes Matisse: “Painting is an expanded drawing.” New doors are opened from one work to another. In this exchange, there is the continuous exploration of the Masters. Basic to Martin's work is the perception that high art is the creation... [more]
