    Description
    Over the course of his career, Knox Martin has developed a complex vocabulary of metaphor during the years between the frenetic dynamism of Abstract Expressionism and the restrained wit of pop art. In an age of alternative media, he has continued to be a fervent champion of painting as a valid form of artistic expression, revealed in his energetic and highly considered painting "Eel, Flask and Grapes."
