> DESCRIPTION

Matthew Monahan’s work oscillates between the material and the immaterial, the abstract and allegorical, the light and heavy, the sharply cut and gracefully modeled. His sculptures are formed from a topsy-turvy collision of histories where sci-fi, classicism, religious iconography and modernism compete. Combining glass, foam, honeycomb mesh and treated paper, Monahan creates multi-dimensional monuments that appear to hover weightlessly in space, ignoring the laws of gravity. His figures are captured in the very moment of breaking through such constraints, about to be re-animated.
