Art Forum Review


The Cress Gallery is very pleased to announce that UTC Diane Marek Visiting Artist Matthew Deleget's exhibition in the UTC Cress Gallery has received a review in the prestigious Art Forum. This is Matthew's first review in that publication and a first for the Cress as well. The following is an excerpt from the review"

“Pictures at an Exhibition,” Matthew Deleget’s current solo show, features works made with common materials—painter’s tape, drywall screws, garbage bags, paint rollers, pushpins, and spotlights—which modulate walls, canvases, and pedestals to variously delicate, violent, and playful effects, and turn the gallery space into something of a construction zone. In the process, Deleget casts painting as a site-sensitive practice that enlists an expansive repertoire of gestures: wrapping, dipping, hammering, pushing, screwing, floating, flooding, and throwing away.
