‘ALFREDO MARTINEZ: THE SITUATION IS CATASTROPHIC BUT NOT SERIOUS’
A ONE NIGHT ONLY – SOLO SHOW – THURSDAY, DEC 15, 2011 / 6-8 PM
WITH a SELECTION of WORKS on DISPLAY at the GALLERY – for the next 2 WEEKS . . .
LEONARD TOURNE GALLERY – 463 BROOME ST, BTWN MERCER & GREENE – SOHO, NYC
Hesh says its about 80% – brand new work, as evidenced . . . by the image above !! nice.
and p.s. is it just me – or does it have a nice clean-cut graphic, as opposed to painterly, almost even flat comic book quality to it, or what ?
real nice color job, too.
for some background, read: ‘RAW CHINA – ALFREDO MARTINEZ RETURNS’ by JOCK WEYLAND on VICE, posted “9 mos ago” !!
up-date: the opening was ‘downtown’ glam and fun. the works are lively and almost feel lighthearted. more colorful than Alfredo’s usual stock-in-trade they were many-hued . . . colored in with a wide range of paint markers that Daddy bought. you know, the kind you have to shake. guess he liked his write-up (!!) . . . pix to follow later – this weekend.
O.K. – not.
but for sure – tons of pix from the opening – going up right after Christmas Day !!
give me a break — it’s the holiday season . . .
