Matthew Reiner

Matthew has spent the past year creating paintings that have become more dense, layers of paint which rub against each other, gestures which clash and cancel -- an accumulation of moves which cohere and fall apart, meaning constantly on the cusp of articulation. His process sometimes involves unstretching and re-stretching his paintings multiple times, through a very physical process.

He hopes to use this residency to find more clarity in the specificity of gestures which he is making.
