City Paper Highlights Cadillac Desert
The City Paper highlights Matt Ziemke’s solo show, Cadillac Desert, in their First Friday hit list.
In the article, Holly Otterbein writes about the connection between the scuptural work and Ziemke’s experience growing up in drought-prone Colorado:
Some of Ziemke’s orange-and-black sculptures look like remnants of construction sites; others mimic maps. They’re harsh, intricate and impressive, and their complexity reflects the lack of easy solutions to water scarcity — one proposed project, for example, would pump water from Utah’s Green River to a part of Colorado hundreds of miles away.
