Matt Mullican, Coloured Elements, 2019
Edition of 16
Archival Inkjet and Oil Stick Rubbing on Canvas
37 x 53 x 2 cm
Often working under hypnosis, Matt Mullican creates artworks across variety of mediums- ranging from drawings and graphic works to sculptures and banners-that are guided by an obsession with the universe's cosmological idiosyncrasies. While hypnotized, the artist claims to experience mundane details of existence more fully and deeply, creating a state of hyper-consciousness that allows him to better catalogue human behaviour. Charting the universe with invented pictographs and color-coded symbolism, Mullican makes a sincere attempt to observe and categorize all human experiences.
