DESCRIPTION

Matthew Rich locates the work in his exhibition Blind Spot, between the color, surface and pictoriality of painting and the physicality of sculptural objects. Using complex compositional structures and assembly practices that make the building process transparent, his painted works on paper draw attention to materiality while contextually activating site and space. The work in Blind Spot is also concerned with the idea that perceptual clarity in a visual structure can be an elusive and slippery pursuit. Like an optical blind spot, Rich's work suggests that obscurity and deflection are as conceptually necessary to his work as edge, color and surface are to the form. Matthew Rich lives in Boston and received his MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago
