Art at CW Gallery: Matt Gatton, The Prints

Dye sublimation on aluminum. Matt Gatton's portraits are visual poems, a photographic form of magical realism which conveys not only the appearance of the subject, but also their essence, evoking their true spirit through collaged, dreamlike, imagery.

About the Event

Matt Gatton is a pioneering artist and scholar based in Santa Fe, New Mexico. His powerful works will hang on our walls until August 15. We hope you'll stop by to see the details!

Gatton has exhibited extensively, including works in MoMA PS1, New York, USA; Hayward Gallery, London, UK; Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Helsinki Finland; and the Ayala Museum, Manila, Philippines, among others.

Gatton’s passion for imagery has led him to become a leading expert in the use of physical light in prehistory and classical antiquity. He has lectured at the Institute of Archaeology at Oxford among others. A large arts festival in Belgium was themed on Gatton’s art writings, which were also presented by Neil deGrasse Tyson on National Geographic’s ‘Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey.’ Gatton has written for the festschrift of renowned Oxford art historian Martin Kemp. Gatton’s groundbreaking work on the distorted horse figures at Lascaux was published in the Journal of Applied Mathematics (APLIMAT) and his research on ancient Greek religious rituals was published Oxford University Press.

Gatton recently released The Shadows of Socrates (Pegasus/Simon & Schuster) here at Collected Works. You can watch a recording of the event on our website here.
