Winter in Milwaukee can be cold and unforgiving, but it’s nice to know that other places have it worse. Take Wexford, Ireland, which appears to be a rainy, post-apocalyptic wasteland in the work of Milwaukee-based artist Colin Matthes. Matthes recently completed a residence in Wexford, and the drawings he produced during that time reflect the area’s harsh weather and bleak landscapes. A collection of those drawings, Getting By In The Foreverscape, is slated to open at Milwaukee’s Sky High Gallery Jan. 18 during Gallery Night. Foreverscape will be Matthes’ first Milwaukee solo exhibition since 2008.
A press release from Sky High notes that “within this exhibition the viewer will find advertising, questionable science, obsessiveness, paranoid ramblings, and genuine concern laced with humor.” Matthes will be in attendance during an opening reception from 6-10 p.m. on the 18th, and the exhibition is scheduled to run through March 10.
