Matt Cotten is a painter, puppeteer, and performer based in Tucson. He explores memory, time, and entropy in his artwork. He uses abstraction to reveal decay and disorder in urban spaces. Places disintegrate and stories dissolve into traces of color and layers of light in his paintings. He uses expressionistic figures to visualize the flow of time and its organic effects on us. His paintings suggest that each of us is but a tiny facet in an expansive natural world.
