DESCRIPTION

Matthew Metzger uses painting as a conceptual device to inscribe a sense of critical self-reflection within the viewer on the subjects of space, physical potential, and abstraction. Metzger has had solo shows at DOVA Temporary at the University of Chicago and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago. His work has been featured in group exhibitions at Columbia College, Chicago; Gallery 400, Chicago; the Smart Museum of Art, Chicago; and the Thompson Gallery, The Cambridge School of Weston, MA. Metzger attended the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture. He received a BFA from the University of North Texas and an MFA from the University of Chicago.
