About The Artwork

I made myself this checklist after first learning of my dyslexia. This piece of lined notebook paper was with me all throughout my time studying at The San Francisco Art Institute. Getting tripped up and slowed down by the occasionally moving, morphing letters on the page can really make it difficult to stay focused on the current train of thought. So, this page was my Rosetta Stone for improving the way I organized my thoughts on paper. And, wouldn’t you know it, in order to learn how to better organize my thoughts on paper, I first had to ORGANIZE MY THOUGHTS! I have no idea what other people might see when they learn of this piece, but it would be interesting to find out. So why not take a look? See if you can spot the point in the drawing at which I officially became Smart. Ink pen on lined notebook paper. 1999. 11 x 8 1/2

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.
