Matt Lipps encounters found, historical, and popular images and appropriates them into three-dimensional compositions to be re-photographed and re-contextualized into his own investigation in the operation of photographs. He describes his practice as being "in, with, and alongside photography."
Lipps has had solo exhibitions at the California Museum of Photography at University of California, Riverside, Marc Selwyn Fine Art (Los Angeles, CA), Silverman Gallery (San Francisco, CA), and Josh Lilley Gallery (London, UK). His work has also been featured in group exhibitions nationally and internationally. Lipps received his MFA in Studio Art from University of California, Irvine and his BFA from California State University, Long Beach. Presently he lives and works in San Francisco, CA and is Assistant Professor of Art at San Francisco State University.
