Matthew Brandt
Los Angeles-based conceptual artist Matthew Brandt blurs the line between the photograph and photographed: his subject matter both visually and physically informs the work. Whether developing photographs of lakes and reservoirs with water from the sites or printing portraits of family and friends with their own sweat and tears, Brandt's deep understanding of obscure historical processes and his experimental approach allow him to create uniquely interconnected works that are revelatory and captivating.
