Known for his ethereal landscapes of fleshy fungi and bushy bombshells, Matt Greene explores his favorite shelves in the library: horticulture, vintage pornography, horror films, fairy tales, 19th Century Symbolist art, and of course the history of Modernism. These disparate interests—and the weighty themes of gender, sexuality, and epistemology that accompany them—Greene masterfully approaches in a hallucinatory, visionary manner allowing them to come together in phantasmagoric splendor on his canvases.

Matt Greene was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1972. He received a B.F.A from the Atlanta College of Art. Matt Greene's work has recently been included in Against the Grain at Los Angeles Contemporary Exhibitions, Mannerfantasien 2 at COMA in Berlin, Eden's Edge at the UCLA Hammer Museum in Los Angeles, Fractured Figure at the Deste Foundation in Athens, Dream and Trauma at Kunstalle Vienna and The Left Hand of Darkness at The Project in New York. Recent publications include Hellbound: New Gothic Art, edited by Francesca Gavin and Mythtym, edited by Trinie Dalton. He currently lives and works in New York.
