Presenting works by AMERICA MARTIN & JOHN “CRASH” MATOS

We are pleased to announce our participation in the second edition of CONTEXT New York taking place May 3 - 7, 2017 in Manhattan. The fair will join Art New York at Pier 94, located on the Hudson River at 12th Avenue at 55th Street.  JoAnne Artman Gallery will be showcasing the work of America Martin and John “Crash” Matos: two artists with distinctive sensibilities in subject matter and concept, yet linked through an expressive formal approach. Martin continues her exploration of humanist themes through figurative abstraction and powerful, raw elements of color and line. Crash’s recent work takes his iconic visual language of the classic New York graffiti underground to fresh considerations of abstraction utilizing the spray paint medium. 

Martin’s work is expressive of her Colombian-American cultural heritage, grounded in art historical lexicon and expansive as well as inclusive in form. Scenes of everyday life that link the body to the continuity of nature permeate her work, portrayed through both the human form as well as the classic still life. Martin continually redefines her oeuvre through new material considerations, continuing the ubiquitous theme of the human condition and our relationships with the physical world. Crash is pioneering not only in his technique and style but also in his pivotal role in directing the way we perceive graffiti today. Curating the groundbreaking show Graffiti Art Success for America at Fashion Moda, New York, in 1980, Crash brought attention to graffiti on an international stage, re-directing the dialogue around it as a legitimate art form. His work has been part of numerous museum and gallery exhibitions around the world, including shows such as Graffiti at the Brooklyn Museum of Art and Art in the Streets at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles. 

We invite you to join us at CONTEXT New York as we celebrate universal themes in art through a dynamic visual dialogue of the work of America Martin and John “CRASH” Matos.
