STATIONS OF THE COG Art Show featuring old & new work by MATT GEER
Matt Geer is a rare breed of Chicago's avant-garde underbelly.His work is spontaneous, mostly self-taught with a foundation in street art, painting, and drawing. He is also known to work in textiles and found objects. He is breaking his work into different series, each with its ruleset and focus.His work shares the same underlying themes but with a shifting focus through the artist's lens. His current paintings have become more minimalist. He favors bold lines and color in a reimagining of his graphic roots and elevating what grabs the eye and casting the rest aside as unnecessary filler.Much of his work is described as Absurdist postmodern neo-minimalism, laced with "snark."
