Matthew Brandt creates photographic works that are anchored in materiality and arcane techniques of image production. In his series, "Dust," he has reproduced historic images of demolished buildings. The re-actualized ghostly depictions are made with samplings of dust from the sites that once served their foundation for the buildings. Brandt has also explored images of landscapes, re-creating iconic vistas in barbecue sauce and synthetically colored cake icings. Brandt recently had a solo exhibition at Yossi Milo Gallery in New York. His work is in the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York and the J. Paul Getty Museum in Los Angeles.
