A collection of 30 years of drawings by Chris Martin, selected in conjunction with the artist, showing how he has pushed the boundaries between the most sophisticated formalism and outsider art's instinctive logic. Martin chronologically presents drawings from all phases of his career as he discovers new forms, from undulating sound waves to mushrooms to tantric arches to the iconic visages of James Brown and Sigmar Polke. On the New York painting scene he has influenced a wave of painters for whom his catholic tastes and loose sensibility are inspirational.
