Matthew Brandt

Matthew Brandt

Work from Lakes and Reservoirs 2.

This work is beautifully self-referential. Each image is soaked in the waters of where it was taken. It reminds me of the bleach treated works of Curtis Mann. I think the particular use of nature connecting these images is no mistake, as Brandt’s work shows, the familiar anchor that our photographic relationship with nature provides the artist with a narrow set of parameters to exploit while still providing the viewer a conceptual framework to function within.
