Matthew Langley is a New York City painter and photographer whose work has focuses on space, compression, volume and sentience (painting) and Vanishing American DIY culture (photography). This photographic series is titled Vanishing Culture USA.
The painting work with structures are a visual system exploring ideas within a framework that allows a departure point for further exploration. This departure – from strict formal codes allows an informal precision that can highlight the variety, complexity and questioning nature of painting as well as offer a further approach to reductive image making. This open ended approach is core to the images created and allows them to be handled with the same approach – a non-specific exactness.
