MATERIAL MATTERS May 21 - August 23, 2019
Egg Collective is pleased to announce Material Matters, a group exhibition featuring works by Mimi Jung, Kristina Riska, Matthew King, Tealia Ellis Ritter and Stephen Somple. Each artist in the exhibition uniquely pushes the materials they have selected to work with, while a reference to the artist’s body, or hand, in the making of the work, operates as a consistent thread amongst the five. Mimi Jung, Kristina Riska and Stephen Somple make fluid in appearance materials that naturally seek rigidity, revealing the impact of the body and the effect of form and void. Matthew King seeks minimalist precision while allowing for evidence of the hand made nature of his wall pieces and actively blurring boundaries between painting and sculpture. Tealia Ellis Ritter aims to influence perception through manual analog manipulation of the photographic negative, connecting the motion of the body to the final image.
