Matt Woodward: The Tremendous Alone

09.16.11 - 12.30.11
Matt Woodward, Installation View
Matt Woodward's massive graphite works on paper are infused with a personal history that is mysteriously and hauntingly executed through an intense reductive representation of architectural details. Building a visual record of physical activity upon the surface of his wildly handled and purposely abused expanses of paper, Woodward works a graphite field to cloak the fierceness of his treatment and then slowly and delicately erases out decorative architectural elements. The resulting pieces are as much "objects" as they are paper representations of any one thing. The process reveals the quiet scream of an artist dynamically challenging historical concepts about illustrative representation and results with the assertive and deeply complex voice of an artist speaking through his work about theory that is even bigger than his creations.
