Matthew Kirk, “A Piece of Quiet,” 2021, hand cut tar paper, wire mesh, acrylic, oil, cotton, brass grommets, blue tacks, staples, wire, 72h x 75w inches


FIERMAN presents new works by Matthew Kirk, known for his use of non-traditional art making materials as well as his wry interrogation of Native American visual culture and his relationship to his Navajo heritage and identity. On view in our booth will be a new series of assemblages in which Kirk approaches the history of Navajo weaving through his own lens. Comprised of strips of tar roofing paper woven through commercial steel fencing, mimicking textile and the patterning of traditional Navajo tapestries, Kirk adorns the surface of the work with a lexicon of personal symbols.
