ABOUT THE SHOW
Foundry Vineyards is pleased to present the exhibition New Sculpture by New York artist Matthew Day Jackson. This exhibit will run from November 4, 2016 through January 31, 2017. The artist’s reception will be held November 4th from 5pm‐7pm and Matthew Day Jackson will also be joining us for our annual Fall Winemaker’s Dinner on November 5, 2016. Known for his multidisciplinary approach to art making, Matthew Day Jackson’s work moves fluidly in and outside of the common boundaries of sculpture, painting, printmaking, photograph, video and performance. He often makes use of cutting edge technologies, combining them with more traditional techniques of a particular medium. Taking on the role of explorer or traveler, his practice has been referred to as an “all‐consuming campaign to chart the outermost limits of human physical experience," in order to find "the place just beyond those limits where the sublime might reside.”
ABOUT THE ARTIST
His work covers a broad range of topics including human anatomy, machines built for speed, machines built for destruction, space exploration, cold war tensions, and nuclear fallout. Through all of these broad topics his work remains grounded in constant dialog with historical and contemporary concerns within the field of art.
