Questioning one's perception of the human form and media with uncanny paintings and sculptures, Matt Meinhardt decontextualizes nostalgic iconography, such as Italian pulp covers, “Beach Home” art, and Halloween decor. The works introduce a new hyperreality where these images cease to refer to what we know and, in their new form, take on a dreamlike version of popular culture.

In 2016 he started the series “Castles and Seascapes” (2016-2017). These land and seascape drawings, paintings, and photographs were made from observational exploration in the Basque region of Spain, coinciding with his self-run Kickstarter of the same name.
