Exhibition Description

When I was in third grade, I entered a classroom where a teacher and student were arguing about a single sheet of loose-leaf paper the student had turned in covered with weeks of homework assignments.  This astonishing number of hand-written calculations included a crudely drawn dump truck carrying a load of even more mathematical work.  Since I was just passing through, I never learned the outcome of the conversation or whether the teacher saw any validity in this student’s unusual presentation of his homework, and I never sawthat sheet of paper again.

My work relates to completing the rest of the story lost in that moment; it is a continual conversation that uses both verbal and visual language to discuss and illustrate the endless field of questions and solutions daily crossing my consciousness.

Matthew Sontheimer received a BFA from Stephen F. Austin State University, in Nacogdoches, Texas, and an MFA from Montana State University, in Bozeman, Montana. He is currently an Assistant Professor of Painting and Drawing in The Department of Art and Art History at the University of Nebraska, Lincoln. His work is represented by the Talley Dunn Gallery, in Dallas, Texas, and the Devin Borden Gallery, in Houston Texas, and can be found in the collections of The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the New Orleans Museum of Art, and the Whitney Museum of American Art, in New York.
