Eugene James Martin (1938-2005) belongs to the generation of African-American artists who emerged after the Second World War. The singularity of his work is marked by the references he found in modern European art, positioning himself outside the trends and fashions of his time. For this monographic exhibition, the gallery has chosen to present works from significant periods of Eugene J. Martin’s work: les Ovales (1971-1973), les Mines graphites (1977-1978), les Bamboo drawings (1982) as well as collages and acrylics made for the most part in the 90s. The various techniques used highlight the mastery, gestural freedom and colorist talent of this artist who is still too little known in Europe.
Exhibition from April 28 to June 30, 2023.
Galerie Zlotowski specialises in the avant-gardes of the 20th century, following two parallel but complementary paths. Firstly, frequent showings of such major modernists as Sonia Delaunay, Jean Dubuffet, Kurt Schwitters and Georges Valmier via its exhibitions and catalogues. In this respect, it has contributed to the recognition of the visual oeuvre of the Gallery's key artist, Le Corbusier. Alongside these great Moderns, the Gallery regularly proposes the rediscovery of lesser-known artists like Ella Bergmann-Michel, Robert Michel, Stéphane Mandelbaum and Eugene J. Martin. Participating in the main international art fairs, the gallery promotes a sharp selection of unseen works, always following its own taste and conviction.
