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.
