48x48" | Pastel, acrylic, charcoal, graphite, colored pencil, crayon on polyester cotton.
“Of any type of surface I use, I get the most excited to use polyester cotton. The level of opacity you achieve when you smear a pastel or smudge charcoal or oil stick is so perfect. Its a material that captures as close to what I see in my head into reality. I wanted it to feel like a marriage of all these different feelings and emotions I was experiencing at the time, both dark and upbeat, based in color and written text; a comfortable chaos. A motto I keep close to my heart is 'the only way out is through', and the squiggle going into the white pastel in the middle and emerging represents this in a way.” - Matt Ross.
