Matthew Brandt Bio

About The Artist

Matthew Brandt is an experimental photographer who works with different processes and materials to create images that are at once beautiful, yet balanced with his artistic concept. Brandt has been known to use everything from bodily fluids to food to develop his photographs. In his most recent exhibition at M+B Gallery titled Two Ships Passing, Brandt paired images of China and American Lake in Tacoma, Washington on etched copper plates equipped with live electrical currents. With this combination Brandt focused on connecting his subject to the materials—a theme he continues throughout his work.

Graduating from Cooper Union in New York in 2004, and then from UCLA in 2008, Brandt, like many of his fellow M+B Gallery constituents, has received critical acclaim in a relatively short period of time. His work can be found in the permanent collections at LACMA and the Armand Hammer Museum. Brandt currently lives and works in LA and continues to experiment with new ways of developing his photographs.
