suckerPUNCH: Describe your project.
Matt W. MOORE: Large hand-painted sculptures. Installed In downtown Moscow during Sretenka Design Week.
sP: What or who influenced this project?
MWM: This series of sculptures was the natural evolution of one chapter of my canvas paintings and murals. After years of trying to cleverly make walls look three dimensional, these sculptures allowed me to play with dimensions in a whole new way. Instead of painting them in a way that made sense, I worked them with the opposite goal in mind. Through the use of color and implied depth I created moments on each form that looked as though the facets were going away from the viewer but the forms were actually coming towards the viewer, and vice versa. A real life optical illusion playground.
sP: What were you reading/listening to/watching while developing this project?
MWM: Listening to a great variety of music in my iTunes library: everything from Jay-Z to Jonny Cash; Bob Dylan to Bob Marley; and Pretty Lights to Rosetta Stone.
sP: Whose work is currently on your radar?
MWM: The Graffuturism Collective is an ever evolving dream team of super talents across disciplines.
