Catalogue Note

"For me, particularly the large paintings... those kind of solidify what I've been trying to do for a long time, which is to make a large painting feel like a drawing, like sitting on the couch with a Sharpie, just making a little line drawing. Because at that scale, it's like the arm movements translate pretty seamlessly into a hand movement. I'm kind of dancing around this thing, doing it as quick as possible, and just letting the marks fall where they fall"
(Eddie Martinez cited in: Ted Loos, ‘Eddie Martinez’s Triumphant Abstractions Land at the Bronx Museum of the Arts’, Cultured Magazine, November 2018, online).
