There is so much potential in the way things are made – the leftovers can be more than we  imagine… it just a matter of how to frame it…

Photography

Looking through the camera and finding a composition – a readymade – appear right before my eyes is still quite a thrill.  I like to sharpen my visual sense through photography.  Composing, framing, taking notice of those objects filled with potential – seeming to appear in the viewfinder, just waiting to be noticed. This visual hunt is a different task than drawing for me, both of which can sometimes be equally surprising…  The camera and the frame, the opportunity to layer visual information, are welcome constraints.   Drawing, when it comes from a similar understanding of constraint seems to be what I’m most interested in accomplishing.

You are invited to see new drawings on exhibition at Stumptown Coffee Roasters – Division Street cafe, Portland, during the month of March, 2011 by artist Matt Niebuhr.

A wonderful thing about drawing a line is that it can be any number of things. One line is not necessarily any more important or informative than any other line. We might assign a line a representative value,  it may become symbolic. Line as an idea drawn, can be a beautiful thing in all of its imperfect representation. – Matt Niebuhr “
