Matt Sheridan combines the mediums of abstract painting and video (painting-in-motion) with the aim of relocating, redefining and re-materializing spirituality in the age of the algorithm.
Oscillating between painting and painting-in-motion, Sheridan's work addresses contemporary power relations between handmade physical reality and the click + drag mentality. By visualizing states of mind and moving them through architecture, across canvas and into sculptures, Sheridan’s work explores how instinct is enhanced, affected and distorted by digital video environments.
Sheridan received his BFA from NYU Tisch School of Art and his MFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. A recipient of numerous awards, grants and fellowships including the 2018 Pollock Krasner Foundation Grant, he exhibits across five continents most recently in Brazil, Japan and Australia.
