With his new work Matthew Bone continues to explore the visual language he created as a child when massive unmonitored media consumption informed his worldview. A latchkey kid from an early age, pornography, comic books and movies formulated his ideas of sexuality, masculinity, and femininity- in essence reality and perception were sculpted by imaginary worlds steeped heavily in sensationalistic imagery. Hindsight has allowed the clarity to investigate and re-contextualize this information like a newly illuminated cave painting seeing the light of day after centuries of hidden dormancy. Utilizing the conventions of comics and sci-fi and the pornographic icons from his youth to illustrate how these disparate elements coalesce into an expanding body of work.
