Stephen Haller
Gallerypresents an exhibition of
new work by American artist Lloyd Martin. The exhibition, entitled Shift, opens
January 14th and runs through February 20th, 2010.
In this new body of work Martin
continues his exploration of the transformative nature of time and use; the
decay as well as revitalization of the urban landscape around his studio, which
provides the primary inspiration for his rhythmically constructed abstract
paintings. Critic Jonathon Goodman writes: “Martin takes on the vigor
and grit of modern city life…the surface is gridlike but roughed up, as if the
toughness of urban existence had made its way into the painting.”
