About

A prolific creator with a broad exhibition history, Matt Christy has shown locally in Nashville at Seed Space, Red Arrow, Mild Climate, and the David Lusk Gallery, as well as nationally at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art in Oregon, and internationally the Mienblau Gallery in Berlin. He also writes about art, publishing Number Magazine based out of Memphis as well as in national publications like Art Papers. He grew up in Franklin Tennessee and moved back to Tennessee after completing an MFA from the University of Oregon in 2015. He lives in Nashville and teaches art at TSU and Watkins College. The works in The Vibrating Neighbor use collage fragments and images embedded in molecular structures and energetic abstract fields to create changes in perspective and scale. The concentric fields of vibrating color become stages for me to purpose peculiar relationships between those isolated elements. I’m less interested in the dream of togetherness and more interested in the unaccountable, relationships that may mean nothing and have no end. Animals crop up because their narratives seem to rub against the peopled ones. Imagine any familiar narrative, imagine an ant on the right shoe of one of it’s major players, now focus on the ant, voila the narrative’s familiarity is disturbed by it’s unknown, vibrating neighbor. I’m probably misusing that term. Neighbor seems to bleed into the idea of Other, but neighbor, for me, has a theological history that I like, and it’s funnier. It’s a change in orientation that doesn’t allow me to think of my other’s as completely isolated, but as caught up in the same unaccountable set of relationships that ensnares all of us.
