Transformations: Works on Paper by Artist Eugene J. Martin, Part I

BySuzanne Fredericq

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
In the late 1980’s-early 1990’s Eugene Martin created large acrylic paintings on rag paper that he would photograph upon their completion. Months or years later he might revisit these same works and transform them by painting over some of the areas, by slicing out parts, or by incorporating segments from other works. This publication documents aspects of this transformation that was enabled by the digitization of photographic slides taken at the time the original compositions were completed. Selected jpegs showing one or more versions of the original painting(s) were then juxtaposed next to an image of the final version of 48 works. In some instances, the transformation is minimal, in others it is substantial, giving rise to complex mixed media collages. These artworks can also be viewed at http://youtube.com/nemastoma. The site http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eugene_J._Martin provides links to other Martin works as well.
