about this work

Matthew Brannon sees his print Misused Pronoun (2009) 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.

Misused Pronoun was published on the occasion of the group exhibition Poor. Old. Tired. Horse. at the ICA in London in 2009.

about Matthew Brannon

The artistic oeuvre of Matthew Brannon consists of paintings, spatial installations and sound works, but he is best known for his letterpress and silkscreen prints, which set up elusive relationships between recognizable images and texts. Inspired by everyday objects and disposable items, his prints frequently include images that would not look out of place in a cookbook, juxtaposed with unsettling or inappropriate sentences. His works often recall the language of advertising and posters – particularly from mid century America – and explore the potential of words and images to communicate but also to confound.

Solo shows of Matthew Brannon include Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; Portikus, Frankfurt; Museum M, Leuven; and The Approach, London. His work has also been shown in numerous group exhibitions including MoMA PS1, New York; Denver Art Museum, Denver; Saatchi Gallery, London; and Bergen Kunsthall, Bergen. He also participated in the Whitney Biennal, New York in 2008.
