“Cameron Martin: Abstractions” @ SUNY-Albany

Highpoint Editions artist Cameron Martin will have an exhibition at The University Art Museum at University of Albany-SUNY June 30-September 9, 2017.

“Cameron Martin is best known for his large-scaled, photographically-based landscape paintings. For years his painting practice centered on investigating various modes of representation and seriality in relationship to images of nature. In 2014, he began working against this approach returning to earlier elements that he felt were missing in his recent studio practice. This led to a re-engaged sense of play and the freedom to entertain productive failure. A new body of non-objective paintings emerged that address current generative roles for abstraction. Each of the new paintings maintain a distinct optical and conceptual addition to an expanded framework. Says Martin, “I often think of the paintings as operating the way a community ideally could, with strong individuals working in tandem, finding affinities but also antagonizing each other in order to produce something larger.”

Cameron Martin received a BA in Art/Semiotics from Brown University in 1994 and graduated from the Whitney Independent Study Program in 1996. In addition to solo shows at galleries in the United States, Japan and Europe, he has been the subject of one-person exhibitions at the Saint Louis Art Museum and the Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, Oklahoma. He has participated in numerous group exhibitions, including the 2004 Whitney Biennial. His work is included in many museum collections, and he has been the recipient of a Pollock Krasner, a Joan Mitchell Foundation Award and a Guggenheim Fellowship, among other awards. His writing has appeared in Art ForumPaper Monument, and the Brooklyn Rail.”
