Martí Cormand is a conceptual artist who employs hyperrealist techniques. He is known for his excruciatingly detailed drawings, in which he reproduces significant major works from art history, viewed as if already reproduced and taped to walls. Some of his better-known works in this vein are his “Formalizing their Concept” series (2012-13), in which his subjects are themselves infamous conceptual works. He is particularly adept at rendering light, shadow, transparency, and texture. Another theme in Cormand’s work is the use and waste of containers and boxes—a particularly poignant subject because his studio is located in what is considered the birthplace of corrugated cardboard in Brooklyn. In a number of trompe l’oeil works, Cormand replicates the surface of a discarded cardboard box on newly minted cardboard. Cormand also creates small, tongue-in-cheek installations featuring banal objects in unlikely situations.
