Art In America

Matthew Weinstein

at Carolina Nitsch,
534 W. 22nd St.

Known for his whimsical 3-D animations, Weinstein here offers an implicit commentary on the recent epochal shift in information technology. Using eBay to gather collections of library catalogue cards from widely diverse institutions, he has combined them randomly into pairs and grids. Inked and painted with bright abstractions and cartoonish images, as is his accompanying artist's book, the finger-worn and librarian-annotated cards, now absurdly altered, suggest an unresolved narrative. The works certainly attest to Weinstein's powers of free association, as he pulls together pictures and themes from his personal repertoire in a manner akin to surfing the Internet.
