Matt Saunders: Poems of Our Climate

Slideshow Advance

This publication encompasses eight years of work by Cambridge, MA- and Berlin-based artist Matt Saunders (born 1975), who engages painting as a time-based medium through cameraless photography, animation, and innovative painting and printmaking processes. Best known for his haunting portraits and landscapes (using imagery culled from avant-garde cinema and found photographs) and moving-image works, Saunders uses analog materials to explore the affective power of images.

Focusing on his experimentation with color processes, the stunning reproductions in this volume range from his first color film, Century Rolls (2012), to his more recent large-scale video installations. Moving image folds together with painting, photography and print, enlivening our relationship to images and their capacity for uncanny returns, echoes and ghosts.

Edited by Deirdre O’Dwyer. Text by Anthony Byrt, Mathew Hale, Hannah Klemm, Miranda Lichtenstein, Jennifer L. Roberts, and Matt Saunders.
