Donald Martiny

Chapel Hill, NC


Martiny works with paint, color, and form; elements from the history of painting often referring to color or manner of paint application from diverse areas on the art-historical timeline. His current exploration is in the presence and power of gesture made to exist forever in the present. These massive brushstrokes offer a potent exchange inviting the viewer closer, even inside the work. The intimacy is instantaneous and intensely visceral. His paintings are not depictions of an experience. Rather they are the experience.
