     Plunge

    Justin Lee Martin

    July 1st through the 29th | Artist reception on Friday, July 28th


    [Statement]
    The paintings in the exhibition, “Plunge” demonstrate a range of meditations on land, both physical and social. Some of the ideas that carry themselves throughout the body of work include; the impact of climate change, structures of control, and tactics. The implications suggested by color and form is directly related to the concepts in the work. In the piece “Sea Swept”, bands of color reflect both linear perspective and warning codes, similar to the fire danger signs found along western roadsides. Notions of control and tactics are fused in paintings depicting floating horseshoes and buoys. The buoy’s grid formation references the children’s board game of battleship and the horseshoes signify another, similar, game of tactics and competition. Aluminum paint is used to suggest tactical measures as well as a landscape stripped bare of its’ resources. The exhibition title, “Plunge” refers to coastal terminology, more specific a type of breaking wave. These paintings suggest the moment of or after the waves have broke.
