Studio alumni Matthew Metzger featured in solo exhibition

Matthew Metzger (BFA - Studio Art, Drawing & Painting) is featured in LOCUS

LOCUS project of new paintings at Sikkema Jenkins & Co. September 9 - October 15, 2011 Opening Reception: Friday, September 9th 6-8PM

LOCUS is a project that takes on a consistently vague, yet ever perplexing subject: space. Its purpose is neither an attempt to further its definition, nor to elucidate its character, but rather a simple appropriation of spatial ambiguities as a way towards Abstraction in painting now. The now that is demarcated by the stoic blocks of Minimalism and Conceptual Art after having been stacked, re-arranged, and designed to meet the standards of the Contemporary. Where more often than not it feels as though our enthusiasm for objects has been exhausted. So in this moment of fatigue, the space of LOCUS is one of distance between body and object, that slippery, fluctuating place between signified and signifier, and the effects that objects impress upon us as that distance collapses.
