Beep Beep Gallery is proud to present a solo exhibition by Brooklyn based artist Matt Relkin.
For "DESOLATION", his 2nd solo show with Beep Beep, Matt Relkin focuses on a new body of acrylic paintings that showcase Matt's signature combination of simple iconic imagery with incredible painstaking detail.
"Desolation" expands on the mythology Relkin has been developing in his recent work while also incorporating natural landscapes found in his travels around the national parks of the United States. This balance of the mundane world with the surreal gives impressions of certain 19th century artists such as Arnold Bocklin and Caspar Friedrich both of whom Relkin pays tribute to in specific works featured in "DESOLATION."
