Preeminent conceptual artist Michael Craig-Martin is renowned for analysing the dynamic between objects, images and language. Early in his career, Craig-Martin worked with sculpture and installation to address these concerns, creating works that knowingly referenced American minimalism. In the 1990s, around the time of his influential tenure as a tutor at Goldsmiths (where he is now Emeritus Professor of Fine Art), Craig-Martin shifted his attention to painting, developing his instantly recognisable style.
Created for the Institute of Contemporary Arts, Baseball Cap is drafted in Craig-Martin’s trademark bold outlines which delineate vivid planes of flat, vibrant colour. Through this precise compositional technique and decisive layering of colour, Craig-Martin continues to navigate the tensions between object, representation and language.
Craig Martin's most recent major exhibitions include Gallery Hyundai, Seoul (2017, 2012); Himalayas Museum, Shanghai, which toured to Hubei Museum of Art, Wuhan (2015); Serpentine, London (2015); Goss-Michael Foundation, Dallas (2015, 2010); Chatsworth House, Derbyshire (2014). His work is held in numerous museum collections around the world including Tate, London; Victoria and Albert Museum, London; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid; Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris; Museum of Modern Art, New York.
