Matt Hinkley, Untitled (2015)
- Edition of 5 + 1 AP, Archival inkjet print on Museo Portfolio Rag
Hinkley’s most notable works are created in modest scale and intricate detail; inscribing remarkably delicate patterns on small-scale plaster and silicon sculptural forms. He possesses an understated but elaborate aesthetic that opens up new possibilities for abstraction.
