Matt Haffner: Dreams of a Sleeping Giant

“For this new body of work I wanted to bring the element of scale from my ephemeral public installations, and the temporary nature of large paper pieces into the environment of the museum space. The large-scale works in this exhibition, similar to many of my earlier works, deal with ideas of sensational simplicity, or the use of techniques that use a minimal amount of materials (simply x-acto cut paper). These materials are accessible and familiar, but by combining these ordinary materials with innovative technique and a richly layered conceptual narrative, they then transcend their everyday associations into something sensational.”
