Quintessa Matranga – Me at 3AM
5.25.17 – 6.25.17 

 

 

Most of these were painted on the floor of my bedroom, a few inches away from the edge of my bed. I have a “studio,” or a separate place to work on the other side of the door. But for these I choose to work in my bedroom. I felt it was more comfortable and private. And about halfway through this series it occurred to me that “comfort” (like a warm quilt) was also an inspiration for these pictures. Comfort separates you from reality. And like with dreaming, painting means an adventure can happen without going anywhere, just being in your own little room.

Quintessa Matranga (b.1989 New York) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. Recent solo exhibitions include VelvetAngelFire at Freddy (Harris, NY); Mental at Goldie's Gallery (Queens, NY); My Celebrity Crush at Boyfriends (Chicago, IL); and Screaming In A Cage In Hell at Sydney (Sydney, AU).
