NEW YORK, NY.- Sikkema Jenkins & Co. is presenting a group show featuring works by Brenda Goodman, Arturo Herrera, and Cameron Martin. The exhibition explores each artists’ unique interpretation of abstraction through the accumulation of layers. Cameron Martin’s works on paper ripple with the meticulous application of marker, melding stroke into stroke to effect a shimmering, dimensional color field. His canvases are painted in overlapping, often transparent layers using techniques that complicate the distinction between the handmade and the mechanical. Both Brenda Goodman and Arturo Herrera consider the presence of negative space in their paintings, through differing compositional processes. Herrera’s collages are created by the application of loose, bold paint strokes upon cut photographs and found media. Alternately concealing and revealing visual information, the resulting work introduces a tension between the iconography of representational images and the implicit gestures of abstraction. Goodman’s paintings feature complex surfaces, a result of her process of gouging into wood or mat board support with irregular, freeform lines onto which she applies media in varying thicknesses. The texture of form itself is emphasized, effecting a sense of tactility and growth in the layered construction of shapes and lines.

Brenda Goodman was born in 1943, in Detroit, Michigan. She received her BFA from the College of Creative Studies, from which she also received an honorary doctorate in 2017. Goodman’s career began as a member of Detroit’s Cass Corridor Movement in the 1960s, before moving to New York in 1976. In 2015, a 50-year retrospective of her work was presented at the Center for Creative Studies and Paul Kotula Projects, Michigan. That same year, her work was included in the American Academy of Arts and Letters annual invitational where she received the Award in Art. Her work is in the collection of the Museum of Modern Art, New York; Detroit Institute of Art; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; among others.

Born in Caracas, Venezuela, Herrera received a BFA from the University of Tulsa and an MFA from the University of Illinois at Chicago. His most recent site specific installations can be found at The Bass Museum of Art in Miami; Officine Grandi Riparazioni / OGR in Turin; and Bloomberg European Headquarters in London. In 2016, the Tate Modern commissioned Herrera to create a long-term wall painting for the sixth-floor restaurant. A wall installation was also recently acquired by the Art Institute of Chicago for their permanent collection. His work is in the collection of the Museo Reina Sofia, Madrid; The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York; The Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and many others. He is the recipient of fellowships from the Guggenheim Foundation, The Pollock-Krasner Foundation, ArtPace San Antonio, The Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation and the DAAD, Berlin. Herrera lives and works in Berlin.

Cameron Martin (b. 1970, Seattle, WA) incorporates both traditional and digital methods in his process of drawing and painting, developing a hybrid visual system that negotiates methodical abstraction with improvisational representation. He received his BA from Brown University (1994), and continued his education under the Whitney Independent Study Program (1996). He has exhibited at venues including the Whitney Museum of Art, St Louis Art Museum, Columbus Museum of Art, City Gallery (Wellington, New Zealand), and Tel Aviv Museum. He currently lives and works in Brooklyn.
