About this Art
For the record, here at 1xRUN & 323East we have taken the current opinion (or opinions) regarding the Mayan prediction for the end of the world on December 21st at face value, and like most end of the world doomsday theories, we're luckily all still here.

Nevertheless, we were intrigued by how this forecast lent itself to popular culture and the creative imagination during recent months. 2012 definitely had it's fair share of tumultuous events, even without this ominous message from the past, so using it as a theme for our final art show is both an acknowledgment of the fading crackpot news item and more importantly an opportunity for talented people to reflect on the message of global finality – a message that’s as old as Noah and as recent as yesterday’s headlines.

1xRUN and 323East have decided that a colorful celebration is the way to go out or remain calm in light of what Central America hinted at many centuries ago. We’ve asked a number of our favorites to submit pieces that touch upon, affirm, reject, or dismiss the notion of scheduled annihilation. They were given free rein to incorporate whatever elements, symbols, ideas, or passions best suited them.

Appropriately enough, this “finale” will mark the final exhibition that the gallery will host at our Royal Oak before moving on to new digs in Detroit's historic Eastern Market district.

Having spent his formative years moving to and from cities like Los Angeles, London, New York and Detroit, Matt Eaton became compelled to investigate his surroundings. While trying to find some familiarity and comfort in these new places, he became fascinated with local signage, lettering and advertising. This quickly lead to a deep admiration for graffiti and the layers of old ads plastered on walls of buildings and subway tunnels. The decay of once new and seemingly important information and how quickly it is forgotten and plastered over have become a major theme in his work. This imagery became a traveling companion of sorts, never having to be left behind and waiting to be enjoyed in every new place he found himself with bright friendly colors and interesting new themes.

The process of mixing these mental images with memories of sayings and quotations that he associates with certain areas and people allows him to use his training in calligraphy and graphic design to produce personal snapshots of his life experience. Having long ago stepped away from the active world of graffiti, Matt still uses techniques and materials native to graffiti culture, as well as painting on wood which allows him to explore more realistic and natural textures and layers while being able to control surface quality.
