September 3 - October 2, 2021 Hyper-Tension Matthew Owen Wead
Artist Statement Matthew Owen Wead’s work employs an interdisciplinary approach focusing on the theme of adversity, particularly for overlooked people and communities. Using adversity as a center point, his work explores subject matter involving identity, personal narratives, critical history, memory, language and tradition. With a background in printmaking, Wead’s practice draws on the history of the art form and its techniques to create works that investigate the idea of resilience in form, subject matter, materiality.
