I’ve had the distinct pleasure of knowing Matt Taber for some time.
He’s an SAIC senior who’s focused largely on drawing, painting, and print media. He’s one of the most diligent workers I’ve ever known, and he’s more invested in his artistic practice then anyone you’ve ever known.
This Saturday, there’s an opening reception for “Distribution,” a body off Taber’s work that will be showing at Studio 1020 in Chicago.
The work deals with recompositing and transforming imagery through reproduction. There are 48 24″ x 36″ prints, paintings, drawings. One of the rooms of the gallery has been completely overtaken by Taber’s prints. Noise patterns from static televisions have been turned into large scale wood block prints which occupy all of the wall space, and the floor has been printed and adhered to the ceiling above it.
Be sure to check it out!
We’ll have photos, and an interview with Taber in the days to come.
1020 Marshfield Ave.
Opening reception Saturday, Feb. 12th, from 6:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m.
