Peres Projects is very pleased to present the first German solo exhibition of Matt Greene entitled “the wilderness is gathering her children once again.” Greene will present four new paintings and a new series of works on paper. The exhibition opens on Saturday, November 12 from 6 to 9 pm and ends on Saturday, January 13, 2006.Greene’s large-scale paintings, which were produced in Berlin during the summer of 2005, present new reflections on his ongoing interest on man’s role in the universe. The composition of these new paintings – the largest scaled works to date – consist of an intricate, multi-layered system of paint, drawing and collage, bringing an unprecedented depth to Greene’s work.
