New paintings by Matt Root

In my recent paintings, I have been incorporating 1950s star atlases with religious and cultural icons, presenting them as shrines or monuments. Throughout these works I attempt to ask questions of identity and ownership within the American landscape. For example, the painting Arizona Tag uses the state’s license plate as a backdrop for objects that symbolize the cultural conflicts of life on the US/Mexico border.
