Eddie Martinez: Cowboy Town

Eddie Martinez’s canvases are formed from oil paint, enamel, spray paint, screen printing and studio detritus, works loaded with coloured, quasi-abstract masses.

He’s on exhibition in Cowboy Town at Timothy Taylor in New York.  The gallery says these recent paintings are “raw, pared back, exposed. . . . And while the palette is typical Martinez – strong blues, yellows, reds – the underlying tone is sinister.”

Martinez first began “doodling” while house painting as a youth.  The images and motifs in his paintings often come from popular culture, and have included cartoon-like ducks, skulls, and clowns.
