Eddie Martinez uses oil paint, enamel, and spray paint to create vibrantly textured surfaces charged with drips, scratches, and brushstrokes. Offsetting the aggressive reds and yellows with refreshing pools of denim-hued blue, Martinez creates a sophisticated palette deeply rooted in color theory. Perfect Stranger, while not obviously figurative, embodies the gesture of large-scale Abstract Expressionism while maintaining a quickness of hand that leaves room for the viewer to imagine a tender - even if unfamiliar - narrative.
