PUBLIC ART: MATT KINNEY: HIDES at Pelham Art Center
May 6 - August 27, 2016 The Pelham Post
Contemporary artist Matt Kinney’s latest body of work, Hides,focuses on nature. His large-scale wood sculptures allow viewers to explore a site specific natural environment, forming a space to contemplate the metaphysics of “natural state.” Kinney’s distinctive handling of medium is at play in his hard and soft textural lines and use of organic materials. Like fauna in woods, the sculptures are camouflaged at particular site lines within the courtyard, with bark clinging to wood as fur to skin. Grouped as a pack, the sculptures create a small maze for viewers to weave through.
