About Matt magee: works 2012-2018
In the mid-1970s, Matt Magee began accompanying his geologist father on field trips from their home base in Texas to visit Native American rock art sites throughout the American West and saw hundreds of pictographs and petroglyphs. Later, while studying art history, he honed his focus on the power of simple formal marks and their power to transmit meaning. This book focuses on Magee’s practice since moving to Phoenix, AZ, in 2012, and his mining materiality, navigation, landscape, repetition, process, texting and email to produce paintings and objects that explore ways of understanding surface and sequence.
