Colin Matthes makes work about engineering the absurd, which allows him to address economic and environmental crisis from a funny, critical, fatalistic, and industrious point of view. His upcoming exhibition, Getting By in the Foreverscape, is influenced by empty places and harsh weather. Featuring drawings made while in residence at Cow House Studios in Wexford Ireland and the release of the limited edition poster set, Essential Knowledge: Volume 1 this is Matthes’s first solo exhibition in Milwaukee since 2008. Within this exhibition the viewer will find advertising, questionable science, obsessiveness, paranoid ramblings, and genuine concern laced with humor.
12-7pm Mon-Fri, 11am-6pm Sat, 12-5pm Sun, closed Tues
