About

Martin Canin is an American artist known for his intense color field and abstract geometric paintings. Color is freed from objective context and becomes the subject in itself. Though at first it would be easy to assimilate his paintings to the work of color field artists like Barnett Newman or Jack Bush, Canin’s large oil paint canvases maintain a distinctive lyrical aspect that separate them from pure geometry and plunge them into a subtle psychological realm. This painting is part of a series from which just a few pieces are left. Canin created a vibrant color field of pink, orange and blue colors. The rigorousness of the geometry is broken up the intense vibrating sensation created by the color combination. The calibrated juxtaposition of the intense colors create the impression of internal glowing light, almost like a painted version of a Dan Flavin work with fluorescent light fixtures. "My work has gone through many changes in the more than forty years that I have been painting and Manet’s statement* still resonates for me. Luminosity is still the goal, oil paint on canvas still the preferred medium, shape and color still plastic means to speak my particular expression."M.C. * To be concise in art is both necessary and elegant. Born in Brooklyn, NY, Canin received his major art training at Syracuse University, where he was awarded the B.F.A. in 1951. The following two years he studied and worked on the West Coast in Carmel, California, and in 1959 he went to Tokyo, Japan, where he had his first one-man show in 1960. His work has been exhibited in Europe, Japan and the United States, including several one-man shows at the historic Graham Gallery at 1014 Madison Avenue, NY.
