Chris Martin



A talk by the Williamsburg, Brooklyn painter and artist's artist Chris Martin. The event was recorded on Feb. 22, 2006 at the Parsons New School of Design as part of their Fine Arts Lecture Series. Martin has shown recently at Uta Scharf (NYC), Sideshow (Brooklyn), Daniel Weinberg (LA), and Bernard Toale (Boston). Fellow artist and Parsons faculty member David Mann introduces the program. (57 minutes)

Chris Martin



The debut of a new series, Off the Rail, hosted by artist, curator and The Brooklyn Rail publisher Phong Bui. For this first segment the guest is artist Chris Martin, whose works are a felicitous alchemy of his influences and references - from Blinky Palermo to Philip Guston to Frank Stella - and whatever tools and materials he may have at hand. His paintings seem at once nighttime reveries of faraway landscapes and fanciful impressions of our most intimate biological structures (57 minutes).

Chris Martin



Chris Martin stops by the Clocktower to fill in a few blank spaces in host Will Corwin's ongoing Williamsburg art scene oral history project. Incidentally Martin also has an exhibition on display at New York's Mitchell-Inness and Nash, in Chelsea (through March 3, 2012), and just had exhibitions this past Fall 2011 at The Corcoral Gallery and The Kunsthalle in Dusseldorf. The two talk about "bigness," Spiritual Abstraction, Mondrian, Forrest Bess and Alfred Jensen, and Al Held: Held was one of Chris's teachers. When it comes to Williamsburg, there are new insights into guerilla art movements and The Mustard Factory, and then there's a love session for the late great Amy Winehouse.
