CHCE0101 is from Matthew Brandt's series Two Ships Passing, a collection of images from China and the United States. In this series Brandt explored the interdependent relationship between the two countries, using photos of urban Hunan, China and the American Lake in Tacoma, Washington to illustrate these connections.

The works are actually electrified: an electric current runs from one single Edison light bulb through the copper plates in the image. Here electricity is used as a symbol of industrialization and the rise of America as a super power. In this way, the images from the American Lake in Tacoma—which are prints soaked in the lake water itself— are electrically connected to those of urban Hunan. CHECE0101 specifically shows a cityscape from China etched on copper picture plates included in the series.

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.Read Less
