Institute 193, Kentucky Presents Works by John Martin

Creative Growth artist, John Martin featured in solo exhibition in Lexington, Kentucky:
Multi-tools–on view from September 5 to October 5, 2013

Mississippi native, John Martin assembles his sculptures from wood scraps that he covers in thick layers of bright paint. For this exhibition, the works depict men, animals and automobiles configured into folding shapes that often resemble a Leatherman tool or swiss army knife.

Founded in 2009, by Philip March Jones, Institute 193 embraces the notion that groundbreaking contemporary art can and does emerge outside of large metropolitan centers.
