There There/Have I Told You Lately That I Love You?

April 15- May 15, 2010

Melted lollipops that land on handkerchiefs or jewelry that is discard to the depths of a handbag only to come out wrapped around the remnants of life are suggested in Matt King’s sumptuous constructions for Clutch. Matt King has fashioned these profanely elegant sculptures for coupling with either “day” or “evening” attire. There There and Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? will rotate accordingly. There There is mounted in the space for everyday use like going to work, or walks in the park while Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? will be mounted for it's more formal outings such as cocktails, or cotillions. There There and Have I Told You Lately That I Love You? are sensual in nature, discretion is encouraged and parental guidance is advised.
