Art Opening with Matthew Sage
September 8 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
Join us for an opening reception of prepositions, a new exhibit with Matthew Sage.
ARTIST STATEMENT: A preposition is a unit of language that puts two (or more) nouns in proximity, either in time, in space, or both. Above, below, before, after, within, without. By repurposing materials left behind by the former occupant of the 2.5 acre farm my family purchased and began renovating in Berthoud, Colorado in 2021, this work is a reflection of many proximities; the natural and the mechanized, Wilderness and Industry, the domestic and the exotic. Early sketches of a long term engagement with agrarian life/work as a longform artistic practice. These drawings, sculptures, and sound works are both representational and abstract interpretations of these processes. An excavation of landscape and history, a self-discovery as made through proximity.
