MATTHEW BRANNON

Biography

Artist Detail Image

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 In the creation of his work, he uses letterpress, an outdated printing technique.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.
