Matt King

Matt King received his MFA from Bard College, after graduating from Cooper Union and the Whitney Independent Study Program. His work has been shown at Guild & Greyshkul, Lurhing Augustine, and Stefan Stux in New York and was included in Sculpture: Precarious Realism at the Vienna Kunsthalle in 2003. His recent project, primarily sculpture and drawing, is a series of psychological portraits that use traditional plaster life-casts in conjunction with re-situated everyday objects and materials. It continues his ongoing examination of the collision between momentary lived experiences and the imagined narrative of existence. He lives in Hobart, New York and teaches at Cooper Union.
