In addition, selected artists will receive a $1,000 award and up to $3,000 to cover expenses related to the proposed activity. We invite all artists to apply with their current needs and ideas, regardless of their status as emerging, mid-career, or established.

My work is primarily in oils and focuses on urban street scenes and still life settings made up of vintage housewares and toys.  I am interested in all things old as I believe they have the most interesting stories to tell.  Buildings and objects from the past both bring back memories for those who have previously interacted with them, and discovery to those seeing them for the first time.  I work in a contemporary realist style, looking to bring to attention the beautiful design elements that already exist in the subjects that I paint.

Matthew Borgen's recent work utilizes imagery from comic books published during the mid-20th century — the genre’s so-called golden age. Using their visual conventions, nostalgic aura, and narrative structure in combination with images borrowed from art history and other popular cultural sources, Borgen has developed a hybrid visual language which he uses in his digital prints and wall installations to make comment on topics ranging from historical, formal strategies of artmaking to issues within the current political and social discourse.
