Lita Albuquerque - Flaunt

“There was a point in my career in the fall of 1977 when I decided to give up painting as I had known it in order to go back to the history of painting, to its very beginning where the first artists were using the earth to draw upon its surface, as a need to understand it historically.”

Bill Powers: Your drawings were featured in “The Avant Garde Won’t Give Up: Cobra and Its Legacy” at Blum & Poe Los Angeles. How were you first introduced to the movement?

Eddie Martinez: In 2009, I was going to Europe a lot—particularly Denmark—which is where I saw Asger Jorn’s work at the Louisiana Museum. I really fell in love with it.
