For his current exhibition, Matt Hinkley is presenting a new series of eleven drawings. Part of a recent larger and ongoing body of work, each drawing is made of horizontal lines, organically broken in different sections and increments, or forcibly interrupted by freehand scribbles to form a kind of degraded topography. The drawings sit within Hinkley’s wider practice, in which works range in scale and material, yet have a consistent thread throughout: a methodical commitment to the intricacies of repetition within minimalist mark making.
