Holly Johnson Gallery will present Matt Rich, an exhibition of new cut paper paintings and gouaches by the San Diego-based artist Matt Rich.
Using complex compositional structures and assembly practices that make his building process transparent, Rich's painted paper works accentuate materiality and activate space. These assemblages playfully invalidate the need for the traditional stretched canvas.
Like their cut paper brethren, Rich's small, dense gouaches describe irregular and invented forms that veer from the fully abstract to the vaguely representational. Charged with their own language and internal logic, each gouache composition is built into being with a vocabulary of shapes and procedures.
Following the opening on September 7, the exhibition continues through November 16.
