Lakes, Trees and Honeybees

Through July 20

The LA based photographer's work continues to be well received. In December 2011 Forbes named Matthew Brandt to an elite list of rising stars in an article30 Under 30: Art & Design. Brandt's first New York showLakes, Trees and Honeybeesis again earning praise. The work is memorable, unusual, integrated. The subject itself becomes part of the fabric of the piece. C-prints are soaked in respective water sources inLakes and Reservoirs; paper is made from tree fiber and ink from remaining bits of wood that are burned into charcoal forTrees; and most unusual is a gum-bichromate process where the paper's emulsion is made from a fine grind of the subject-Honeybees.

Each series has its own aesthetic- theLakes and Reservoirsshift from atmospheric representational to complet abstraction.Treesis soft and elegant, and almost resembles an etching or line drawing.Honeybeesis graphic and energised but stark. Depth is drawn only through the size of each insect. The work is fascinating- the dedication to approach pushes the limits of our belief and renders each image precious.
