Matthew Stone photographs paint strokes on glass and then uses them to build bodies using software. When printed, they inhabit “a shared world,” a statement says, “defined by a grey infinity floor, proliferating petals of paint and a raw linen void as backdrop.” In a new set of work recently shown in at The Hole NYC, under the title “Neophyte.” He was last mentioned on HiFructose.com here.
“Besides exploring the interaction of two and three dimensionality, where painted strokes become sculpture that then becomes a stretched painting on linen, one key territory this work explores is visibly the technological,” a recent statement says. “Putting aside the painstaking way these pieces are made, what do the technological tools actually open up to artistic expression here, to figure painting?”
