TAZ review of Soy Capitán's "The Innerworld of the Outerworld of the Innerworld" (Berlin)

The art of the week for Berlin :In the quarter of the morning

"In Matt Jones' work, tree stumps and fungi continue to glow even on the forest floor. In "Eighteen tree stumps and various fungi at night" (2020), ink and watercolor combine to create a dense tumult reminiscent of deep-sea animals briefly bathed in light."

Earlier, in younger years, in this so-called world of signs, in which every sign is enlarged and nature appears stunted in comparison to these signs, back then I still thought this would be the way the eyes wandered all by themselves, just to where the ears went regarding acoustic signals. But I have long since come away from this. The world of signs, not necessarily the one of advertising, hurts me—unless I find my own sign, that is, I discover the sign of an innocent thing, of a self-contained thing, validating it, so to speak, beyond itself.

With a poem-essay by Anthony Hawley

Time Walk is published on the occasion of Matt Jones—Time Walk at Galerie Jerome Pauchant, Paris, with a brilliant poem-essay by Anthony Hawley. 

Time Walk presents a series of paintings that take up the artiface and the exaggeration of Mannerism, and the decadence and pageantry of Rococo. After a residency in Udine and Venice, Italy (funded by a grant from the Kossak Painting Program at Hunter College), and Paris, France, (organized by Galerie Jérôme Pauchant) Jones’s newest body of work references Giambattista Tiepolo, Jean- Honoré Fragonard, the Hudson River School painters, and the digital environments of open world fantasy Role Playing Games. The paintings generate a multivalent topology by layering simultaneous alternative realities. Guided as much by history as by affect, Time Walk centers the viewer as an active participant in the narrative of each paintings’ field of significations.
