The Introducing Series
at The Window at 125
Martha Clippinger Introduced by Bridget Donlon
This event took place on November 7th 2012
The Introducing Series is an initiative that creates a platform for emerging artists to be formally introduced by an advocate of their art and future career. Twice a month a new artist will be presented by their champion and will have an exemplary piece of work exhibited at The Window at 125.
To accompany the piece in the window space, a celebration of each artist and the formal introduction will take place in the form of a conversation between the champion and artist during an invitational evening. They are posted in its entirety every two weeks here on Vimeo and on rogersmithlife.com
A conversation about art with Martha Clippinger touches on every corner of art history, from Outsider Folk Art to the masters of Impressionism to late twentieth century Abstraction, everything in between and beyond. Her work regards these disparate histories while forging a practice that defies classification. Martha’s works, paintings on assemblages of found wood, are sculptural by nature but at heart are the work of a painter. Her work is generous, joyful, and intellectually rigorous, and I knew that Martha would embrace the opportunity to install a site-specific artwork with gusto. She will create a work of art that engages the entirety of the physical space and the viewers with equal intent.
