Foul Ball! Is an exhibition of new works by Matthew Usinowicz that use baseball as a metaphor to describe the American social and political landscape. The body of work draws it's context from the 2016 election results to current, and the ongoing exploits of this presidential catastrophe. Using the spectator experience of baseball parallel to political theater, results in a satirical narrative through work focusing on objects and materials that embody the game of baseball.
The conceptual inspirations for Matthew's work are the layers of human experience and spatial existence - the relationship between humans and obects. Matthew works and lives in San Francisco and has exhibited both nationally and internationally. He received his BFA from San Francisco Art Institute and his MFA from UCSB.
