Michael Matsil Statement


Artist Statement
Every one of us has our own internal way of ordering what we see. Our senses elaborate and respond emotionally to raw space by perceiving such things as color, texture and material: the physical qualities of 'place.' The artist has the ability to take 'place' and arrange it, edit it, idealize it and produce a still scene. These scenes are transitory in nature, idealized in form and reflective of a singular perception. These images, expressed as archival pigment prints, are about process, and the fixing of momentary, spontaneous tangencies between individual perception and environment. They endeavor to distill the complex and chaotic places around us into a purposeful and seemingly choreographed scene. This activity points toward our own sense of place and where we choose to place ourselves as observers.
