Eddie Martinez: Buflies

Parrish Art Museum, Water Mill, NY
30 June – 29 September 2024

Celebrated for his bright, bold, and colorful paintings, Eddie Martinez will present a new body of work made specifically for the Parrish. Taking full advantage of the Museum’s expansive space and high ceilings, Martinez is creating six 12-foot tall Buflies paintings with corresponding monotypes produced at legendary fine art print publisher ULAE (Universal Limited Art Editions). The artist started the Buflies series in 2021 when his son Arthur was a baby and became fascinated with butterflies, mispronouncing them as “buflies.” Martinez has been painting them ever since.
