Ephemera

September 03 - 24, 2011

The works featured in Ephemera are the newest iteration of Matos’ masterful oil-on-canvas explorations, featuring a complex layering of texture, pattern and portraiture. He collects inspiration from a variety of sources, and photographs people, places, and aesthetic details to pull from for his finished works. Matos’ new canvases are a result of the piling-up of things he is drawn to, torn-up, remixed, and given the appearance of ripped paper – set to mimic the aesthetic of worn, shredded posters pasted to the side of a building. Through this visual language, Matos hopes to pull the viewer into a conversation surrounding impermanence, and the constant shifting of social, political, moral, cultural and aesthetic ideas.
