Matt Bindert on his Edgewood College Gallery show, for WORT-FM

“Interconnected Crises,” running through May 17, weighs war, media and globalization through patterns and violent color.

Madison-based artist Matt Bindert’s new show at Edgewood College GalleryInterconnected Crises, uses densely patterned woodcuts, repeating motifs, and a blistering color palette to create an unmistakable feeling of anxiety and overstimulation. Bindert joined me at WORT-FM studios this week to talk about the thinking behind the show and his role in an interactive art and music event this Saturday at the Central Library, part of this week’s series of events on Paramount Records. Bindert delved into many specifics of the new works, including his use of images like balloon animals and bombs, and why he wants the show to feel like an arena.

Thanks to Dylan Brogan for producing the segment. A shorter version aired on April 23, 2015, on WORT’s In Our Backyard news show.
