Vignettes from the Zenith City Archives

Nieves / · mute

From the dawn of this century, Matt Leines has produced a steady flow of fine art to delight and confound viewers–drawings and paintings rich in color and detail–exploring the kaleidoscope of memory and outer zones of imagination. He possesses a workmanlike approach to symbolism and surrealism, the poet’s ability to realize longed-for images and a passion for theatrical sports. The world moves in patterns, faces unfixed, lines dancing across pyramid walls. Perspective is subservient to unique modernist iconography; his characters operate in a kind of abstract epic or post-Columbian codex that blurs pure myth and daily life. 19.5 x 25.5 cm / Color Offset
