New England artist Matthew Northridge works employ found, often industrial material in repetitive, serial arrengements. Whether composed of variable units in real space or networks on paper, rules are decided and a system developed from many parts. Much is borrowed from popular printed material (magazines, books, advertisements and packaging), where each element carries some of its previous meaning, language, and history. Excised from its original source, a fragment is combined with others to create a subjective framework, rooted in the act of collecting and cataloging.
