Matt Eddmenson

Nashville, TN

Matt Eddmenson, who graduated from The Art Academy of Cincinnati in 1999, draws from a range of influences and sources for his practice, including Cowboy Comics, Pop Art, and the work of Cy Twombly. His works are gatherings and reconfigurations of American imagery and iconography, commonly featuring cowboys, skulls, and rodeo horses. He also incorporates images from the golden age of comics and tattoo culture. Eddmenson explains: “I work from my memories as a child, I learned to draw by tracing comic book covers over and over until I was able to draw these characters from memory—I have a deep admiration for comic book art. There is a constant battle in my work that positions itself between taking something that is well drafted/executed and then destroying it to some degree.  By planting a mark or a scribble so deliberately that it then becomes the new focal point of the piece.  A simple act of “messing it up” so that the work takes on a dual personality as if there are two artists working in tandem.”
