Although often described as a painter, Matthew Ritchie creates works on paper, prints, light-box drawings, floor-to-wall installations, freestanding sculpture, web sites, and short stories that tie his sprawling works together into a personal mythology drawn from creation myths, particle physics, thermodynamics, and games of chance, among other elements.
Ritchie’s presentation includes performances by Shara Worden of the band My Brightest Diamond.
With support from UM Museum of Art (UMMA), Chelsea River Gallery and the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD).
