Martin Facey

Saturday, November 20, 2010, 4pm

A painter who left Los Angeles for decades of New Mexico landscapes, Martin Facey returned to California with a palette infused with saturated color and a visual purity of form. Taking seed germination as a visual metaphor for life and its myriad formations and developments, Facey has created a vocabulary of vibrant abstraction. The recipient of a Guggenheim Fellowship, Facey has honored a language both vigorous and poetic.
