An exhibition of more than twenty grey paintings from the 1980s, reunited for the first time in more than two decades.  During the ’80s Martin concentrated on horizontal divisions of six-foot square canvases, discovering endless permutations by dividing the canvas with pencil lines and varying the tonal range within a palette of greys.  The exhibition includes important loans from the Guggenheim and MoMA.  Please click here for the press release.
