Martos Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of new drawings by Lyle Starr. This is Starr’s first show to feature drawings and his fourth solo show with Jose Martos since 2001.

Using adapted mark-making tools Starr’s work on paper continues to pursue the inventive surfaces and optical complexity of his paintings. His new work collapses sculptural shading, illusory color, and intricate delineation into a more skeletal and restless visual plane.

Influenced by real estate newspaper inserts and traditional bookbinding papers, Starr fuses incidental imagery into a suite of drawings that is both challengingly miscellaneous and visually harmonious.
