IN PROCESS: Matthew Steele
Opening Reception with the Artist | October 1 from 6 to 8 PM
Hodges Taylor is pleased to present a solo exhibition featuring new sculptures and works on paper by Charlotte-based artist, MATTHEW STEELE. Matthew’s practice hinges on the inherent connection between humanity and the infrastructures we inhabit. The work created for his first exhibition with the gallery stems from processing the recent loss of his father. The artist’s vernacular of pieced walnut sculptures is complemented by a new series of flattened mechanical drawings of three-dimensional objects in space using hundreds of feet of graphite line on paper. Continuing Matthew’s use of found objects, a discarded and reworked chandelier becomes both ceremonious and celebratory. In reckoning with a new absence, the resulting dimensionality in this exhibition becomes an homage to omnipresence
We are pleased to share that Hodges Taylor will donate 10% of sales to Crafting the Future, an artist-founded initiative working to diversify the fields of art, craft, + design.
