Matt Hansel’s painstakingly crafted oil and flashe paintings span periods of art history, remixing and interpreting in collage-like pieces. The blending of Renaissance and Lowbrow iconography is pushed further into surrealism with Hansel’s abstractions, which also defy the painter’s chosen tools, and his use of exposed linen. The artist, an MFA graduate of Yale, has been shown across the U.S. and in Tokyo, London, and beyond.
