Matthew Alden Price, Part I
This is from an on-going project profiling artists. While many are visual artists, I also pull in others from differing creative fields - musicians, wood-workers, writers, tailors, etc. The project is rooted in portraiture, but I'm equally as interested in profiling and documenting the artistic and tactile processes behind the work.
This is Matt. He and his wife Won are both artists, and Matt’s studio is in the same building as mine. They’re constructing a public arts commission to be displayed at the Philadelphia Airport. A 20 foot wall of wooden cubbies, each cubby will hold an object donated by an individual that displays their own personal connection to Philadelphia. Once completed, the piece will be on permanent display at the airport.
