One of the best things about the technological age is the way we learn now: it’s so multifaceted. And even with all the death and destruction in my work, I still feel that what I express – and the artist I’ve become – is a celebration of this technological age. – Matthew Day Jackson
With presentation cue’s to Monet’s Reflections of Clouds on the Water-Lily Pond Matthew Day Jackson‘s Reflections of the sky depicts a surface area of the moon (based on a Mercator map) that has been rendered by laser etching gypsum board (wallboard or Drywall) – a mass-produced material often used within domestic interiors. The etched pits and troughs that create the images surface topography also retain a gritty interference quality. The result exists somewhere between the quality of the production process and the visual noise associated with distant screen based transmissions.
