Matthew Weinstein: The Living End

March 17 – June 11, 2017 - Mr. and Mrs. Chesley G. Magruder Gallery II

Based in New York, Matthew Weinstein is a visual artist with a diverse background in theater, acting, film, screenwriting, design and painting. He works extensively in 3D animation and transfers the technical and narrative concerns of this medium into his art. Using the most advanced technological graphics and a small scale production community, his work approaches the visual quality of Pixar style animation. Weinstein describes his animations to be “culturally transgendered, existing between entertainment and art… that moment when the unreal becomes hyperreal but skips over reality on the way.”

This exhibition features three videos and a collection of paintings by the artist. Weinstein has exhibited at the new Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, the Kunsthalle in Vienna, the Matisse Museum, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Denver Museum, the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, as well as many international galleries.
