Matthew Brannon was born in St Maries, Idaho, in 1971. He received an MFA
from Columbia University, and lives and works in New York. Brannon's work
suggests a complex relationship between image and text. Sometimes, the text is
printed so small that it can be difficult to read. At other times, it is nonsensical, or at least a non sequitur, and on further occasions it presents a literal, deadpan explanation of the image. Brannon has explored text in a number of forms, from micro-stories to concrete poetry. In the creation of his work, he uses letterpress, an outdated printing technique. His most recent solo exhibitions include: Office Baroque Gallery, Antwerp, Belgium in 2012 and Gentleman's Relish, Casey Kaplan, New York, NY A question answered with a quote, Portikus, Frankfurt, Germany in 2011.
