New work by Cincinnati, Ohio artists Chris Reeves & Matt Wiseman
Chris Reeves & Matt Wiseman
For the exhibition “Villains!” Chris Reeves and Matt Wiseman present a series of visual situations representative of ideas that can imply villainy – progress, inertia, no fun – and the objects themselves are meant to act as perpetrators of resistentialism. Reeves’ collages, a new body of work divided into five separate series, presents a “specified trouble” in that their representations of potentially villainous ideas are left up to the viewer to decode. Wiseman’s near impossible golf course provides plenty of opportunities for mental harm and damage. The works presented together are an exploration of what villainy means to the individual: sometimes heavy, sometimes trivial, but always present waiting to make our days more difficult.
