Katy Martin


Katy Martin just made a new video to be projected, on stage, during a live jazz performance by the Matthew Shipp Quartet. It's at Roulette in Brooklyn on Wednesday, June 22 at 7 pm.

The video is a single take - 45 minutes - where she makes a new painting, using her body, at a pace that's designed to complement the music. The event is part of this year's Vision Festival.

Film Hanafuda / Jasper Johns (1979-81) in the Jasper Johns retrospective exhibition, the Whitney Museum and the Philadelphia Museum of Art

But the real glory is a selection of abstract prints Johns made between 1977 and 1995 with Japanese artists in Tokyo and New York (he is seen in action in an accompanying film by Katy Martin). These prints, composed of unstable patterns of crosshatched parallel lines, are collectively titled “Usuyuki” or “light snow,” the name of an 18th-century Kabuki play that Johns has described as being about “the fleeting quality of beauty in the world.”
