Often working under hypnosis, Matt Mullican creates artworks across variety of mediums—ranging from drawings and graphic works to sculptures and banners—that are guided by an obsession with the universe's cosmological idiosyncrasies. While hypnotized, the artist claims to experience mundane details of existence more fully and deeply, creating a state of hyper-consciousness that allows him to better catalogue human behavior. Charting the universe with invented pictographs and color-coded symbolism, Mullican makes a sincere attempt to observe and categorize all human experiences.

The artist's work has been shown at numerous institutions, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Museum of Modern Art, the Drawing Center, and the National Galerie in Berlin. His work was also included in the 2008 Whitney Biennial.
