    About The Work

    Matthew Brannon is best known for his letterpress and silkscreen prints, which set up elusive relationships between images and texts. His prints frequently include images that would not look out of place in a cookbook, juxtaposed with unsettling or inappropriate sentences. Often recalling the language of advertising and posters – particularly from mid century America – his works explore the potential of words and images to communicate but also to confound.

    The artist sees his print for the ICA as both casual and deadly serious. The objects depicted – that include a ruler, a brassiere and some shrimps – suggest ways of measuring worth, while the text apparently derives from a pedantic grammatical criticism. The combination can be read in literal or nonsensical ways.
