Matthew Colaizzo: Locality


An Exhibition of New Work by Matthew Colaizzo, Curated by NAPOLEON member H. John Thompson

Locality, a solo exhibition by Matthew Colaizzo, is an exploration of landscape through woodblock prints. Incorporating the grain of the wood, these large-scale works are made through a hand-printed process using multiple blocks. Colaizzo’s prints are inspired by dirt piles and construction sites in Philadelphia, but they take on other meanings that examine place on earth with ideas about natural history, human progress and universality of geographic spaces.

319 N 11th Street, 2L
Philadelphia, PA
