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 seven 12-foot tall Bufly paintings. Like much of his work, these canvases are imbued with a personal iconography. The artist started the Bufly series in 2021 when his son Arthur who was two at the time became fascinated with butterflies, mispronouncing them as “buflies.” Martinez has been painting them ever since.

Eddie Martinez: Buflies is organized by Corinne Erni, Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education and Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs, with additional support from Kaitlin Halloran, Assistant Curator and Publications Coordinator.

Following on the heels of the publication of her first career-spanning monograph, Sam Moyer’s solo exhibition at the Parrish Art Museum will showcase the artist’s relationship to material and light as a throughline in her practice, displaying the range of her processes, and bodies of work, across three galleries. Focusing each space on a specific material relationship, Moyer presents a large-scale stone painting tailor-fit to the architecture of the room, sculptural photographs whose composition are specific to the landscape of Eastern Long Island, and a series of smaller, more representational wall works. Consistent with Moyer’s habit of manifesting a directly tactile experience with the visual materials at hand, two of the three galleries will be outfitted with artist-made marble benches and visitors will be able to play on hand-cast concrete backgammon boards in the Museum’s lobby.

Sam Moyer: Ferns Teeth is organized by Corinne Erni, Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman Chief Curator, Art and Education and Deputy Director of Curatorial Affairs, with additional support from Kaitlin Halloran, Assistant Curator and Publications Coordinator.
