Matt Magee | Fragment Flag
Fragment Flag, 2019
Edition of 20
30 x 41.5 Inches
In this election year, Planthouse is pleased to announce the publication of Fragment Flag, a three-color silkscreen printed in an edition of 20. In today’s world, America is more divided than ever, disunited over myriad social issues. These schisms run deep, creating the fractured system that Fragment Flag addresses.
“Fragment Flag equals divisive speech, divisive tweets, divided families, divided migrant families, fragmented politics, fragmented political parties, a star spangled symbol of red, white and blue in disarray.” – Matt Magee
Matt Magee is a multidisciplinary artist best known for his minimalist abstract geometric works. Magee’s repertoire includes painting, sculptures, photography, assemblages, and murals. Born in Paris, France, Magee has since lived in Libya, London, New York City, and his current home, Arizona. While Magee’s sculptures focus heavily on repurposing media, his paintings emphasize repetition and recurrence. Although Magee’s style is minimalist, his work is expressive and inspired by contemporary science, ecology, and technology.
Magee is represented by galleries in New Mexico, Texas, London, Massachusetts, and Chicago. In 2017, he won the Arlene and Mort Scult Award, adding to a collection of earlier awards. Magee’s work has been exhibited around the world.
