Get your telescope out. In 1969 a project initiated by artist Forrest “Frosty” Myers saw Andy Warhol, Robert Rauschenberg, David Novros, Forrest “Frosty” Myers, Claes Oldenburg, and John Chamberlain exhibiting a six man show on the moon. The exhibition on a ceramic chip was installed by a Grumman engineer on a hatch within the leg of the lunar landing module Intrepid for the Apollo 12 mission. While the other artists seemed to have taken the project more seriously Andy Warhol’s contribution was that of the penis doodle in the upper left hand corner. NASA apparently knew nothing about the project.

I want to introduce you to a friend of mine. His name is Emiliano and he lives in Rome where having left London he’s found more time to create. The newest sculptures added to his blog are some of his best and most gruesome yet. Touring the site is like stumbling into a strange cabinet of curiosities with a variety of sculpture, ready-mades, paintings and illustration depicting all sorts of strange travellers he’s meet on his journeys.
I’ve got a lot of respect for Matthew and for full disclosure I’m entirely biased because I live with him. This is a new collection of work that was part of a recent mini show, Blood and Salt Water, at the Working Room galleries.
These pieces go beyond a simple correlation involving his love of diving and underwater life to inhabit the world of the petrie dish as well as representing organic and crystalline structures. Everytime I go into the studio to see the now vast series I discover a new favourite and at Matthew’s tireless production rate of one or more a day since the new year it’s an endless restructuring of favourites. He’s just hit the 100 mark and I can’t wait to see what’s next.
