Baldwin Gallery is proud to present its fifth show with multi-media contemporary artist Matthew Weinstein. Weinstein is a young artist with visions of iconography: Victorian sci-fi strange spirituality suspended in a media-mix of the classically traditioned, and the affectless. In the current body of work, Weinstein’s resultant inflections are populated by exotic blooms and lighthearted human remains, performing joy and celebration in an unmoored idealized virtual reality: as powerful and impassive as the deities they seek to supersede.
Both born and based in New York City, Matthew Weinstein earned a B.A. from Columbia University in 1987. His art has been exhibited in Germany, Switzerland, Brazil, the Netherlands, Italy, and the United States.
The public is invited to meet the artist at the opening reception, Saturday, 26 December, 6-8 pm. Images are available upon request. Please call 970.920.9797 for further information.
