GAMING THE TILT
Recent works by Walter Matthews
Tempus Project Space
Opening Reception June 29th, 7:00-9:00pm
Gaming the Tilt is an exhibition of recent paintings by Walter Matthews. By using pours, airbrush techniques, staining, and, at times, working on the backside of the unprimed canvas, Matthews explores the ways in which language – textual and visual – often fail us. Leaving traces of his reversals and indecisions, and rooted in the vernacular of his lived experience, Gaming the Tilt seeks new languages that neither proclaim nor insist, but invite multiple subjectivities.
