From April 16 until May 15, Dutch artist Hyland Mather presents a solo exhibition of small assemblages and paintings at the Lane Meyer Projects Gallery in Denver, Colorado.
Mather, often known by his monikers X-O or thelostobject, uses materials collected in his world wanderings to create assemblages which he likes to call ‘Lost Objects.’ Often he creates these assemblages on a large scale on the street, but for the exhibition ‘Resonancy’ he has materialized more intimate pieces for the gallery setting.
Additionally, Mather will also be showing a small selection of paintings on abandoned paper from the series ‘Stars and Charts.’
Hyland Mather, aka X-O, is both a street artist and gallery artist and also owns Andeken / Battalion gallery in Amsterdam.
Mather summarizes his own work as follows: “I make stuff from junk. I pick up messes and try to make them into something I think looks good. I use the junk from the city, I use the stuff from the field, I use the bits in the forest, and the things in the trash. I hunt, I collect, I gather, but only what I need for the work, for the play. Color, shape, composition. Some lost stuff gets found again.”
Lane Meyer Projects is the conceptual scaffolding for its overall hybrid arts facility: part exhibition space, part work space, and part ideas Salon. Through its physical site, LMP is able to exhibit edgy shows and projects. LMP provides a conceptual platform that fosters diverse artistic discourse and practice. This space has inherent liberties to evolve as deemed by current art trends, but not dictated by such.
