Greely Myatt installs his artwork titled “Monster Marks” with Jason Miller at AMUM.
Monster Marks, 2018
Greely Myatt’s work addresses fundamental issues of communication and miscommunication, of our knowledge of the world and its limits. He arranges ordinary objects like push mowers, bed frames, and gas cylinder caps to suggest they are imbued with significance, even if the viewer can’t quite pin down their meanings. Physical and sometimes monumental constructions of abstract marks—letters, punctuation marks, thought and speech bubbles—playfully draw attention to the inadequacy of such arbitrary signs in expressing human experience.
Monsters, too, exist at the edges of our understanding, which is why the visual vocabulary of the monstrous is impossible to categorize in any consistent way. Myatt’s Monster Marks, with its competing, overlapping letters and exclamation mark, highlights the uncertainty and drama that inevitably accompany the monster. It is a fitting emblem for the elusive notions of monstrosity represented in this exhibit, which conjure up compelling but fragmentary insights about human connection and the abyss, of art and monsters. It is up to us to connect the dots. #monstermarks#art#exclamationpoint#exclamation#monster#titlewall#exhibition#museum @davidluskgallery @greelymyatt

“Does such a thing as 'the fatal flaw,' that showy dark crack running down the middle of a life, exist outside literature? I used to think it didn't. Now I think it does. And I think that mine is this: a morbid longing for the picturesque at all costs.”
This book starts off so mysterious and a bit melancholic, every word makes me want to keep reading more and more.
