Matthew Deleget “False Positive”


poster for Matthew Deleget “False Positive”

This event has ended.

Fresh from the 2014 Whitney Biennial, Matthew Deleget is deeply committed to a pluralistic approach. In his studio, he merges painting with conceptual, process, and installation strategies. For him, it is important to make work in the most direct, matter-of-fact manner possible — no novelties, gim.micks, or tricks. He is more interested in the idea of painting than the process. Paint is applied as if painting a fence, color is used straight out of the tube. He is decidedly unromantic about this process. It is all a means to an end. For his exhibition at Outlet, Deleget will feature a suite of new broken-panel monochrome paintings informed by the recent events of the Arab Spring and the United States’ unsustainable militaristic policies in the Middle East over the past decade. The paintings are made of industrial enamel spray paint on wooden panels that are then repeatedly hit with a hammer until the meticulous surfaces are splintered apart and broken open.
