Matt Stone Tectonics opens Friday at Like the Spice Gallery

Like the Spice Gallery is delighted to present “Tectonics,” the first solo exhibition by Matt Stone opening Friday, June 24th! Stone's Perilous, playful, and ultimately geological sculptures are like underwater landscapes condensed and rearranged within new spacial contexts. Join us for the opening reception on the 24th from 6:30-9pm, enjoy cool refreshments, good company, and some breathtaking sculpture!

"Stone has affixed his gaze upon geological, geometric and botanic involution. His deeply layered sculptures are riddled with an expanse of materials, ranging from neon foam to cardboard florets, tendrils of resin, and tattered webs of spandex. Large, freestanding sculpture and small singular satellite objects intermingle fluidly on the walls, floor and ceiling. Stone's sculpture balances the obscenities of the environment with flirtatious, and strikingly calculated, ingenuity."
