Samuele Visentin presents Matt Macintosh - Superunison

Samuele Visentin is proud to present Superunison - the first solo exhibition by Canadian artist Matt Macintosh in Europe. The show features eleven works on canvas. The title refers to the notion of unitive experiences, where a sense of unity or oneness transcends sensory or cognitive apprehension. It also refers to a song by 90's SoCal noisecore band, Drive Like Jehu.

Matt Macintosh’s paintings stage a relationship between abstract language, naturalistic representation and non-verbal communication. Within the limits of the canvas, the artist paints building blocks of forms and gradients, striving for a unitive balance of shapes, colours and dimensions, arranged to suggest a notion of unitive state. The painted surfaces hint at an idea of ethereal, almost digital, technique but nevertheless signs of the human touch emerge in details hidden in plain sight. Macintosh’s paintings point to the threshold of a spiritual dimension, but hold their ground as objects in a material reality.
