One to Watch: Matt Coombs

Inside his studio

Matt Coombs is an emerging artist from New York, and currently lives and works in Sarasota, Florida. He has a BFA from the Ringling College of Art and Design, and participated in the New York Studio Residency Program in 2012.

He works primarily with painting and collage, creating abstract works that are influenced by Dadaism, popular media, and the history of painting. Through his practice, he seeks to explore the limits of visual clarity, and the concept of echolalia—the involuntary repetition of vocalizations made by another person.

He has exhibited his work both in solo and group exhibitions in New York and Florida in shows at Two Columns Gallery, Florida, Clothesline Gallery, Florida, and Chashama Gallery, New York.
