About The Artwork

I’ll sometimes use art supplies to document brief encounters and play little improv games with friends and other nearby victims. I don’t hold this type of social improv art up to the same sort of aesthetic standards that I would for my other, more mainstream visual art endeavors. But once in awhile it’s liberating to perform a random, elaborate, and completely meaningless ritual. Just pretend that everybody knows all the rules, and make shit up-be weird. See what happens, and pay special attention to how often people come away with refreshed smiles. You’ll see what I mean if you give it a genuine try. Ink pen on lined notebook paper. 2002. 11 x 8 3/8

Matt Woods is a contemporary painter. His figurative and narrative works attempt to harness his own stream of consciousness towards images that reveal simple, universal stories of adversity and perseverance. In his abstract works, he sees himself as an archeologist of paint and process, repeatedly adding and subtracting layers to a variety of surfaces, hunting for visual splendor and order in the frantic discord. His work balances soft, careful mark making, often combined with violent, destructive processes, to achieve a result which mirrors his view that life is a marriage of exaltation and pain. The canvas materials Matt chooses are often reclaimed pieces of wood from structures that come with their own embedded histories, like an old, well-used easel found at a yard sale, or an abandoned skateboard ramp found in the middle of the desert. These ghosts that accompany the materials call out to have their stories influence the marks made by the artist, adding further buried layers of interest and complexity to the work.
