NEWS: The Ackland Museum Store has RELOCATED to a New Downtown Chapel Hill Space!

“The Tiny Gallery” at the Ackland Museum Store is proud to present DONALD MARTINY: Prototypes + Studies

Donald Martiny is a Chapel Hill-based artist who works with a mixture of polymer and pigment to create sculptural paintings, usually on a grand scale. In this show, the works are small, prototypical studies that Donald makes as part of his process of creating his larger paintings. Donald’s work has been featured in numerous publications and websites and his work is represented by galleries in the United States, Europe, and Australia.

Deborah Swallow, Director of The Courtauld Institute of Art describes his work: “Donald Martiny’s work forces us to question the established definitions which form the backbone of our understanding of painting as both a pursuit and a product, and of paint as a medium.”

We are delighted to share these “works” behind the work.

On view through 31 December 2016.
