Artist: Matthew Rosenfeld

Matthew Rosenfeld (b. Atlanta, GA, 1989) is an artist currently living and working in Atlanta. Matthew received a BFA from Washington University in St. Louis, Sam Fox School of Design and Visual Arts in May 2012, and has co-curated numerous group exhibitions throughout the St. Louis area including Primordial Ooze, Post Office, and ARE WE THERE YET?
Through his work Matthew examines the interstices of the visible by playing with the immaterial spaces between bodies. Caught between solidification, liquidness, horizontality, and verticality, the work expresses a space of becoming in which the body is put in conflict with a multitude of forces¬–containers, ground, consumer goods, and ductile metals–as it vies for definition. In many instances, borders are simultaneously drawn and challenged as the work is suspended in a state of formal ambiguity.
Currently Matthew is experimenting with transparent surfaces as a way to confront what might be termed a “crisis of visibility” in today’s digital culture. By printing on clear packing tape, and through acts of production and negation, Matthew creates flat works that both come into and fall away from being. The ink jet images printed on tape are etched into, erased, covered up, printed over, and scanned. A cyclical process is made visible that mirrors quests for truth, understanding, and authenticity in a time when transparency and exposure are both demanded and largely put into question.

La’Toya Princess Jackson is a dance instructor at the Center for a New Generation at Connolly Elementary.  She believes the best part of her job is exposing children in the inner city to the beauty and technique of dance, particularly ballet, but also modern and jazz.  As a result, she has the opportunity to help them develop new skills and discover their talents, and provide them with self-confidence and an introduction to healthy living habits.
