Chris Martin is like a god to young abstract painters, so when the lovably prolific maestro presents new work, celebration ensues. The raucous paintings in his current show at Mitchell-Innes & Nash don’t disappoint–they feature much of his familiar imagery and go-to materials like glitter, newspaper collage, and sewn-together tarps. Many of the ginormous paintings sport cutouts, one of which has become a resting place for a little gnome figurine. Here are a few detail shots I took when I stopped by the gallery, as well as the James Kalm Report of the opening reception.
