GRIMM will present a group of new bronze sculptures by Matthew Day Jackson.Mathew Day Jackson will present a group of new bronze sculptures at the gallery in Keizersgracht, marking the artist’s fourth solo exhibition with GRIMM. With a focus on gun crime, Matthew Day Jackson references the subject of value, American identity and the ability to defend oneself in his upcoming exhibition Gunshot Plywood Bronze Works where the common building material, plywood, and bronze are combined to create a series of provocative and simultaneously reflective works. Matthew considers plywood as structural and functions as a facial layer and is the surface upon which our reality is affixed. It supports our ideas of ourselves, and in the case of these sculptures, it is a framing device lying at the intersection of ownership and violence, two primary lenses through which America sees the world and itself. Bronze is the material of the memorial or the statue. He thinks of these as American Statues, memorials to hopefully being understood in the future as the way we were. He wants the sculptures to exist inside or outside. They are intended to lean or hang on a wall.Matthew Day Jackson (1974) was born in Panorama City (CA) and currently lives and works in Brooklyn (NY). He received his BFA at the University of Washington, Seattle (WA) in 1997, and his MFA at the Mason Gross School of the Arts, Rutgers University, New Brunswick (NJ) in 2001. Jackson’s recent solo exhibitions include ‘Core and Strip’ at GRIMM, Amsterdam.The exhibition will be on view from September 9 through October 13, 2017 at GRIMM Gallery, Frans Halsstraat 26, 1072 BR Amsterdam, The Netherlands.For details, visit: http://www.blouinartinfo.com/galleryguide/grimm-gallery/overviewClick on the slideshow for a sneak peek at the exhibition.
