Eddie Martinez has recently teamed up with AllRightsReserved to release a new edition based on one of the reoccurring motifs in his paintings. Produced in an edition of 100, Blockhead Lamp is handcrafted from stainglass, comes signed and numbered, and mirrors the skull-like imagery that often appears in the Brooklyn-based artist’s work.
Martinez further explains – “I started drawing this blockhead form in 2005. In retrospect I can see they were a direct response to my obsession with Guston, particularly his masonry work. I have a distinct memory of visualizing a face merging into a Picasso skull disappearing into a Humpty Dumpty brick wall.”
Head over to DDT Store to join the raffle if you are interested in adding this to your collection.
