Open Sesame: Art, Books and Objects

Matt Schust: Working Space

July 9–August 21, 2016
Opening Reception: Friday, July 8, 7–9pm
Artist Talk: Thursday, August 11, 7pm

Open Sesame is proud to present an exhibition of Matt Schust's paintings.

Matt Schust's painting is concerned with the tradition of formalism and rooted in geometric abstraction, colour field painting, minimalism, and neo-geo. The optical effects he strives to create through the use of space, colour, and line are complicated by characteristics that allude to things outside the domain of “pure” abstraction, such as diagrams and commercial design. These external elements are not literal representations of real-world structures; rather, they serve as the armature through which an exploration of space, composition, and colour occurs.

Matt Schust (b. Kitchener-Waterloo, ON) is currently based in Toronto. His work has been exhibited at G Gallery, Xpace, and Olga Korper Gallery, among other Toronto galleries; Idea Exchange (Cambridge, ON); and many other galleries and institutions. Schust holds a BA in Studio Art from the University of Waterloo and an MFA from the University of Guelph. In 2015, he received an Emerging Artist Grant from the Ontario Arts Council.
