Matthew Porter – Dying Butterfly
29 October 2022 - 28 December 2022
Baronian is pleased to present Dying Butterfly a solo exhibition of Matthew Porter (b. 1975, Pennsylvania, US).
As with much of Porter’s work, the accumulation of images creates an experience of cinematic romanticism tempered by the realities of our time and an underlying mood of concern. In some of the photographs we see animals hidden in trees, or lurking behind rocks.Dwarfed by their natural surroundings, they appear grafted onto their surroundings, like extras in establishing shots.
The selection of pictures in the exhibition are presented like an album of songs, connected by their recurring themes or visual style, and assembled by the artist during a discrete period of production. Seen together, they form less a coherent narrative than a series of glimpses into possible storylines, or interconnected subjects.
