We went to Matt Wood‘s artist’s talk today, at his installation inside St. Paul’s Church on Bloor.
Shred Everything is taken quite literally in some paintings. Textures are made of shredded financial records, neatly putting money and fine art on the same plane.
The name of the TotalShiftShow does more than reveal Matt Wood’s sense of humour, it makes appropriate reference to shifts in direction that the artist has made in these recent works. I like where he is going.
Matt Wood is showing 18 works, many quite large, notable for rich textures, layers and colours. Danica and I went before the reception, to have a look when the room wasn’t crowded.
