Speed - and its counterpart technology - affect not just what we see, but how we see. This is the foundation to Matthew Carver’s paintings and this new suite of works, in a solo exhibition, called 'Sirens and Lights', at Gallerie TAKSU from Apr 16 - May 7.
Matthew Carver’s paintings immerse the viewer in this ‘unreal’ spatial vortex Virilo describes, the metaphorical fracture of speed as paint hits canvas in luminous blips and trails. It is an illusory space rather than that of postcard propaganda or nostalgia and its reverberation consumes the gallery with the energy of a tornado.
For more information, please contact Rini at the gallery at 03 4251 4396.
