About Matthew Conradt

In his mixed-media photographs on Mylar, Matthew Conradt employs collage, painting, printing, and erasure to explore issues of class, loss, and memory in popular American image-making. As he explains, “I create large-scale collages by printing found digital images from all kinds of media and photo-transferring them onto Mylar. Through the act of appropriation, I want to show the disparities between the realities of the country and the perceptions we show ourselves. What emerges is an American counter-narrative that is steeped in contradictions.” Conradt is particularly interested in images of labor, production, destruction, and family and community life.

American, b. 1983, based in Brooklyn, New York
