“The dreamlike world
in Matuschka’s work
is an exploration of
flesh and steel, of
the supple and
mysterious container
of the feminine torso
against the cold
sharpness of broken
glass and peeling
paint. All is in Ruin.
The passion of life
has degenerated
and has been
abandoned like an
empty apartment
with the wind
passing through a
broken window.”

Jay Spica 1989 Freesia

“I still can not abandon the
Ruins. Perhaps I’m still trying to stack deck chairs on the
Titanic, but the search for
meaning begins where
hope and helplessness collide.”
