Lot Essay


"People look at the eyes in my paintings and wonder why they’re that big. People ask if they’re on mushrooms or if they’re scared or if they’re my eyes. They aren’t any of those things. I don’t have to make specific choices or explain things. I don’t have to make things clear; it’s just what I want it to be. That’s a luxury I don’t want to give up."
Eddie Martinez
