I love the idea of a piece of art that will change over time.

Matt Browning makes great work.

This work is a teaser of huge proportions. The idea that each of these tarred objects is the work is actually silly but Matt doesn't care if the whole thing is taken wrongly. That's part of the artist's game here. The work is the whole room for heaven sake! To buy one of these little parts as a collector is to kind of attack or dismantle the work. Matt doesn't care. It's in to not care or be sort of indifferent. There may be many ways to understand this work, and if I understand it right, he doesn't care which way you go. There seems to be a sense of major irony here about gallery and art experience. Matt is in a playful mood and ever so philosophical about what is happening. Philosophy here being the great questions about what the hell art is. Jen, the whole room is the understatement but easily missed as such. The room's environment has become part of the work and this can't be bought for $300. The work maybe can't actually be bought and that is part of the fun and the questions being raised. Matt is full of so many wonderful questions and oh so contemporary impulses as artist. There's something extremely fresh here. He's not alone. We are lucky to have a good number of Seattle based artists exploring the same ironies and impulses as acceptable and proper. How damn interesting! The revolution lives. This is art that is frik'n fun and quite beautiful.
