Matthew Willie Garcia is a printmaker whose work moves far beyond the traditional print media, he specializes in what he calls 4d printmaking, which includes screen printing, projection-mapped animation, large-scale installation, and drawing. His work explores ideas of queer quantum mechanics, intersectional existence, and speculative/science fiction identity narratives through color abstraction and nonrepresentational forms. Garcia was born and raised in Tulare, CA. He received a B.F.A. in Printmaking from the Kansas City Art Institute and his M.F.A. from the University of Kansas. Garcia has shown his work regionally though out the Midwest, notably his work has been included as part of “Queer Abstraction” group exhibition at the Nerman Contemporary Museum of art, “Star Children” Group exhibition at the Bradbury Art Museum, and will be part of the upcoming “SUMI-FUSION” Mokuhanga exhibition in Nara, Japan. Garcia is the Studio Manager at the Lawrence Arts Center.
