MATT GAGNON: MATERIAL MEMORIES

Winston Wächter Fine art is excited to announce our first solo exhibition with artist, architect and designer Matt Gagnon. Gagnon’s Light Stack sculptures are an ongoing exploration of the artist’s fascination with the transformative quality of light, and how materials and surroundings impacts theses changes. His totemic works incorporate oak, pine, concrete, brass, polished aluminum and painted MDF. Each layered piece offers an interaction with the central lighting source, “holding” and defining the light in a unique way. 

Gagnon believes that everyone approaches a material with their own associations and biases. He suggests that individual combinations and proportions of color and material contain traces or allusions to spaces or memories. The assembled whole is fragmented and ever-changing, and our thoughts and memories are colored by the physical context in which we live.

Gagnon studied architecture at Cornell University before joining the studios of Gaetano Pesce and Frank Gehry. He has taught design at Otis College of Art, Parsons School of Constructed Environments and has been invited to speak at Savannah College of Art and Design, Woodbury School of Architecture, City College of New York and University of Central Oklahoma. He has been featured in publications such as The New York Times, Metropolis, Surface, Interior Design and Dwell. Additionally, Gagnon has been commissioned by Peter Marino (for Chanel and Louis Vuitton), MTV, The Four Seasons and Ritz Carlton hotel groups, Google and NASA’s Deep Space Network facility in Pasadena, CA.

ETHAN MURROW: EXIT STRATEGY

Ethan Murrow’s latest body of work, Exit Strategy, is series of drawings that “examine escape, retreat and hiding, whether from society, encroaching chaos or just because being away is better.” Drawing upon what Murrow calls a “childhood determination to succeed and an adult obsession with glory and heroism,” Murrow’s images invite his audience to consider the complexities of aspiration. The absolute confidence and passion of Murrow’s characters are intended to stand in contrast to the possibly dubious outcome of their efforts.

Ethan Murrow has been widely exhibited across the United States, and in France, Georgia, and Hong Kong. In addition to working on paper, Murrow creates large-scale wall drawings which have been featured in museums and corporate collections, including the Institute of Contemporary Art, Boston MA, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA), Jacksonville, FL, and Facebook Offices in Ireland. He is the recipient of multiple residencies and awards, including the Ballinglen Arts Foundation Fellowship, Ireland, and Artist in Residence Fellowship, the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art, Nebraska. Ethan Murrow is based in Boston, MA, where he is a professor at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts, Tufts University.
