Matthew Porter is an artist who loves to trick the eye, often producing images that seem impossible to capture on camera. Best known for his Flying Car series, which was featured at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in the 2013 exhibition "After Photoshop," Porter references Americana, historical events, and cultural iconography all within a single frame. He says, "I'm interested in authoring my own source material. I need access to the subject. This particular print comes from a series of carefully fabricated compositions made by overlaying hand-made and found objects with pre-existing imagery resulting in a layered and lively collage.

Framing option is black or white painted wood, 7/8" wide flat face and 7/8" deep, with UV acrylic glass.
