March 8 – March 31, 2013
Clothesline Gallery, Sarasota, FL
Clothesline Gallery presents Let it Float, an exhibition of new works by emerging visual artist Matt Coombs. This is Coombs’ second solo exhibition in Sarasota. His work has also been exhibited in Brooklyn, Harlem, and upstate New York.
An undergraduate in the Fine Arts Department of Ringling College of Art and Design, the artist recently returned from the New York Studio Residency Program (NYSRP), where he stopped painting and found a renewed interest in drawing and collage. This shift opened up a new mode of thinking for Coombs, which has found its way back into painting for this new body of work.
“My images explore systems that go unnoticed, and the limits of visual clarity,” Coombs writes in his artist statement, “My paintings and collages are small, but often imply a network of surfaces and sensations that extend the physical coordinates of the image.”
Opening night will feature a variety of original paintings and collages and give guests a chance to meet the artist. Wine is complimentary of Sarasota Vineyard.
