This year at UNTITLED, Miami Beach, The Hole will present a solo booth of new works by Matthew Stone. Using computer generated 3D sculpting, painting and rendering, Stone’s hand-painted abstract brushstrokes emerge in human form.
The new works use technology to break with the history of composing a painting on a flat surface, lifting the strokes into a virtual and free space. The addition of shadows and foreshortening creates an illusionistic – trompe l’oeil sense of depth and perspective within the canvases. The paintings show diverse bodies intertwined with each other and single figures gazing out at an unseen other. Diverting from his previous purely optimistic imaginings of neutral utopias, the work dramatizes the human need for interaction, touch, recognition, respect, and raises questions about independence and interdependency.
