Something...Matthew Day Jackson at Hauser + Wirth

Matthew Day Jackson exhibition  Something Ancient, Something New, Something Stolen, Something Blue is up at Hausher + Wirth.   According to the press release
 Working with a set of signature themes that range from space exploration and war machinery to advanced anatomy, he uses both traditional craft techniques and cutting edge computer mapping to make art that exposes the layered and often dark relationships between technology’s abstractions and the palpable effects of time. For Jackson, the measurable and the inexplicable, power and sacrifice, mortality and the infinite are all part of a realm he has dubbed ‘the Horriful’, where everything we do has the potential to create both horror and beauty
