Vignettes from the Zenith City Archives

Matt Leines

From the dawn of this century, Matt Leines has produced a steady flow of fine art to delight and confound viewers–drawings and paintings rich in color and detail–exploring the kaleidoscope of memory and outer zones of imagination. He possesses a workmanlike approach to symbolism and surrealism, the poet’s ability to realize longed-for images and a passion for theatrical sports. The world moves in patterns, faces unfixed, lines dancing across pyramid walls. Perspective is subservient to unique modernist iconography; his characters operate in a kind of abstract epic or post-Columbian codex that blurs pure myth and daily life.

Observant, vibrant, obsessively intricate and rippling with gnostic strength and humor, Leines’ output reflects the 80’s pop culture of his New Jersey youth, highlights from the modern art playbook and a global range of graphic influences. He is master of lines and balance–the kind of kid born with a crayon gripped in his hand–who developed his talent through practice and study. This genius for drawing is supported by genuine sympathy for the mysteries of existing and an eye that ranges far and wide, past, present and future, real and unreal.
