Pedro Matos at Shooting Gallery

The work that I’ve seen from this show has got to be Pedro Matos‘ best yet. On Saturday, Pedro’s solo show opens at Shooting Gallery in San Fransisco (7-11pm). The paintings for Ephemera tick a lot boxes for me: The portraits are interesting and well painted, Pedro has pulled off the faux-d├ęcollage style that is so difficult to do well and there’s of an influence from Specter‘s sign and fabric paintings. I’m very jealous of all of you in San Fransisco who will be able to check out Ephemera in person (and if you miss the opening, it runs through September 24th), but for the rest of us, here’s a taste:
