On view in the Blue Lobby through March 6, 2022 is an installation of figurative sculpture by Los-Angeles based artist Matthew Rosenquist. Rosenquist is known for carving commentary on contemporary life out of rough-hewn wooden block. His process suggests a “take-no-prisoners” approach, much as his figures suggest self-snapping punk rockers on their cell phones. Artist Matthew Rosenquist is attuned to a certain street culture and attitude in common circulation both in L.A. and elsewhere – a suburbanized vernacular observed not only in L.A., but disseminated throughout other metropolitan centers across America.
Blue Lobby Exhibit
Matthew Rosenquist’s work conveys a rare insight into the self-conscious construction and projection of identity and attitude while exploring the notion of social ‘position’ (as distinct from pose or posturing) with respect to place and peers and society at large. Matthew Rosenquist received an MFA in painting from Savannah College of Art and Design (SCAD), Georgia in 1998. As a visiting artist at Lux Institute, San Diego he participated in redefining the museum experience to make art more accessible and personally meaningful.
