One day while I was talking to Matt, I asked him how he started painting this series. He said his hands were hurting from painting non-stop with a brush; he decided to find an alternative so, he cut up some sponges and started using them instead. He enjoys this satisfying action, and it also gives this series a big and bold color.

Matt Geer is a rare breed of Chicago's avant-garde underbelly.
His work is spontaneous, mostly self-taught with a foundation in street art, painting, and drawing. He is also known to work in textiles and found objects. He is breaking his work into different series, each with its ruleset and focus.
His work shares the same underlying themes but with a shifting focus through the artist's lens. His current paintings have become more minimalist. He favors bold lines and color in a reimagining of his graphic roots, elevating what grabs the eye and casting the rest aside as unnecessary filler.
Much of his work is described as Absurdist postmodern neo-minimalism, laced with "snark."
