Limitless | Matt Gil Artist Showcase
June 25 through July 23, 2014
"I take from my sketchbooks what calls to me and says 'make me.'"
-Gallery artist, Matt Gil
Enter the sculptured world of artist, Matt Gil -- where possibilities are as limitless as his fresh perspective and where conventional, commonplace objects morph into modish creations, providing a function beyond their forms.
A lover's kiss is immortalized into an aluminum materialization; the tufts of a chair reimagined in hot pink; a chicken's tail feathers, a lawnmower, times and places from childhood -- just some of the associations that are revealed in Gil's artistic makings. Ideas are born, worked into the physical, and emended until they are given a soul that Gil states, "will survive and live beyond me.'"
Bespoke Collection Galleries -- Ma(i)sonry Napa Valley, I. Wolk Gallery, and our new Healdsburg gallery, Aerena -- are pleased to present Matt Gil's Limitless: a collection of sculpture, jewelry, furniture, paintings and drawings.
Gil's works have been exhibited by or are a part of the permanent collections of San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, The Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, The San Jose Museum of Art, The Triton Museum and more.
