b. 1982; Lives and works in Brooklyn
Matthew Larson received his BFA in painting in 2006 from the Rocky Mountain College of Art and Design and has since exhibited extensively across the country including the Museum of Contemporary Art, Denver.
In Larson’s fiber works, the artist uses yarn to create meticulous weavings. Unlike traditional warp-weft weaving, individual threads of yarn are layered, by hand, into Velcro creating precise patterns and striations of color and texture.
The artist’s powerful tapestries recall the Minimal painting style common to the Op Art movement of the 60s. While highly minimalist in design, Larson’s tapestries provide a fresh approach to the trajectory of traditional tapestry in art history. His systematic layering conceals the artist’s hand while revealing the impactful, yet subtle, nature of the works.
