reCYCLE pARTS Artist Spotlight: Matt Sommers
Matt Sommers is a visual artist, composer, musician and producer that works in the Indianapolis area. His portfolio includes multiple mediums; including sculpture, video, photography, illustration, and sound.
This seasoned artist’s artwork is often described as existing at the crossroads of mechanical and lyrical, blurring the lines between man-made and hand-made. Techno/organic issues are addressed in his artwork. Matt is concerned with the place that machines occupy in our lives, our spaces and our hearts. ”These devices are conceived by people, and we see humanity in them. Personality, behavior and intention – normally considered human attributes – are often observed in mechanical creations. My work explores this phenomena.” – Matt Sommers
Matt is a Herron School of Art & Design Alumnus, a member of the Big Car Collective, and Creative Director for Kilpsch. For more information and to view some of Matt’s various artwork, please visit http://sommerville.net.
