4me4you features “LEAD ME INTO TEMPTATION”


4me4you visits Omni Gallery which featured the artist Matt McCormick - “LEAD ME INTO TEMPTATION”


Matt McCormick samples from the fabric of his surroundings into vignettes of contemporary life.

McCormick splits and recombines mundane snippets from highway scenes, billboard advertising, and from the realms of film, TV, and social media into compressed metaphors and narrative stories.

Within McCormick’s body of work, seemingly incompatible elements cohabitate with ease—reflecting the conflicting histories of Western culture. 

Here, as in his paintings and drawings, nostalgia for a fabled past abuts the realities of the “American dream” that confront him daily in Downtown Los Angeles, where his studio is located.
