Los Angeles | postponed til 2024

Known for his inventive use of nontraditional art making materials, Kirk here presents new painting and sculpture building on his previous work and in new directions, imbued with his signature language of mark-making and imagery reflecting his relationship to his own Navajo heritage and identity. Kirk has for years repurposed construction materials in his practice, from his original sheetrock paintings to his tar roofing paper weavings.

Matthew Kirk (b. 1978, Ganado, AZ) lives and works in New York. He has had solo exhibitions at FIERMAN, NY (2018, 2021); Halsey McKay Gallery, East Hampton, NY (2019, forthcoming 2022); Adams and Ollman, Portland, OR (2021); Makasiini Contemporary, Turku, Finland (2018); Louis B. James, NY (2012, 2016), among others. He is a 2019 recipient of the Eiteljorg Contemporary Art Fellowship. His work is in the collections of the Everson Museum, Syracuse, NY; the Eiteljorg Museum, Indianapolis, IN; the Forge Collection, Taghkanic, NY, among others.
