Matt Neuman uses the circle as a compositional building block to create highly structured works. In these large-scale woodcut prints, Neuman uses geometry as a delivery vehicle for color to provide a visual experience at the intersection of Cartesian and non-Euclidian space. The resulting works challenge viewers’ assumptions about the nature of space and lead them to examine the role that abstraction plays in providing a visual analogue to more fundamental spatial realities.
These works on paper redefine the scale and complexity of the woodcut printmaking process. Neuman is able to use printmaking techniques to produce unique original works that push the final image far beyond the conventional definition of the “artist’s print.”
Neuman received an MFA from Boston University in 2011 and currently lives and works in New York .
