The works in Richmond native Matthew Hawthorne’s upcoming series, Gut Feeling- comprised of a selection of his older and newer works- focuses on the relationship between man and the man-made. By intertwining elements of the organic and industrial, Hawthorne blurs the line between the two realms.

“I’ve been working to try and illustrate a connection between the aesthetics of the mechanical object made in man’s image, and a sort of skeletal, fleshy undertone to project a sense of embodiment.” -Matthew Hawthorne

Gut Feeling will be on display until May 29th. via the Gallery5 blog
