In his illustrations of ‘empty’ animal skulls, Matthew Floriani employs a drawn form of collage to resemble domestic textiles, bed sheets, and tablecloths as a soft shield that offer partial protection--provoking a sense of vulnerability in the most regulated of spaces. The tension created through the lifeless mask, the bleakness of a hollow home, and the comforting fabric patterns create questions of what is protected and what is exposed. Floriani has a Visual and Public Art degree from Cal State Monterey Bay and completed his MFA in studio art at Mills College in 2017. His artwork has been shown throughout California and Italy. He lives and works in Oakland, California.
