Matt Saunders Show Opens at Blum & Poe Gallery This Saturday

Artist Matt Saunders' show Neon in Daylight opens at Blum & Poe Gallery in Culver City this Saturday, April 17. It's the artist's second solo exhibition at the gallery. The show comprises a new video installation as well as some startling and beautiful works utilizing a cameraless photographic technique in which light is passed through painted linen or Mylar onto photosensitive paper. The opening reception will take place from 6 to 8 pm (and the public is welcome as always).

According to the gallery, Saunders' source material includes images from Joseph Cornell’s collage film Rose Hobart (1936) -- itself a work that repurposes images from a previous work.  In addition to Saunders' photographic works, the show will offer King Hu / Reverdy, a multi-channel video installation.

The title of the show is taken from the Frank O'Hara poem "A Step Away From Them," where he writes about walking through Times Square, observing “Neon in daylight is a great pleasure.”

The show will run until May 24. Blum & Poe is located at 2727 S. La Cienega Blvd.
