About Matt Saunders
Matt Saunders was born in 1975 in Tacoma (Washington, US). He currently lives and works in Berlin (Germany), New York (US) and Boston (US).
Saunders works are a painting/photography hybrid whose final form is a photographic print. At their most basic, his works begin with small ink on mylar sketches derived from film and television stills. These mylar sketches are then used as negatives, either contact printed (laid directly on top of photo paper and then developed), or placed in an enlarger. As negatives, the mylar sketches are done in reverse-those parts which appear lighter in the photograph are darker on the painted negative and vice versa.
Matt Saunders is represented by Martin Asbæk Gallery and Niels Borch Jensen Gallery & Editions.
