Matt works and lives in New York City.
My work Is a reflection on the endless
levels of details in day-to-day life. In reality nothing is smooth, the closer we look the more we see. My sculptures are to be appreciated as windows through the mundane
or rather--zoom-ins on what may be prosaic.
They triangulate their position using evolutionary thinking,and transcendental experiences.
When I alter the object it reflects a new way of seeing. As I attempt to find the final nature
of the form , I create new seams and new connections. These seams and connections build over time giving the work a corporal
history of actions. I nurture these ways of building as if they were animals or plants, thereby alowing the object to create itself
. My relationship with these materials is creatively symbiotic.
I believe artistic beauty resides in the interplay between the artist and a real, challenging and infinite world
, my art is an excursion into that world.
