The Union for Contemporary Art is pleased to present the exhibition That’s right...I still don’t have a website., featuring the work of Lincoln-based artist Matthew Sontheimer. His maze-like drawings and photographs explore how we access, process, adapt to, ignore, and otherwise live with information. Text-centric compositions follow the artist’s internal dialogue, presented as an ongoing conversation between two fictional characters. Expressing the sometimes discordant speeds of thinking and making, Sontheimer’s works are filled with revisions, sidebars, and tangents that provide a wry running commentary about his own process.
