What do they feel?
Introducing a new series of large-scale paintings, Matt Mullican’s exhibition What Do They Feel? dives into the molecular universe of the bodily interstices of That Person, namely Glen, the alter ego the artist has been developing since he first experimented with hypnosis in 1973. Without gender, age, or race, That Person has become the anonymous vehicle through which Mullican explores an expressive parallel dimension, drawn towards a cathartic gestuality. Nevertheless, this dimension has been carefully systematized and organized, revealing after a 45-year long career, a syntactic, pictorial and conceptual multiverse that configures the cosmological core of the artist’s prolific oeuvre, which spans through the fields of performance, sculpture, painting and installation.
