Catalogue Note

"I mean, it's totally subjective, I'm not saying that the world is in these things that I'm making, but It's the world as I encounter it. My use of these materials is my attempt to come to a better understanding of the world that I live in. When you take these things that are bits and pieces and scraps, and glue them back together again, and totally dismember them from where I found them, that's when the ideas start to come in. The scraps develop into formal structures in a way that has become almost automatic, and those forms begin to communicate ideas. " - Matthew Day Jackson
