‘Gone to Vegas’ is an Archival Pigment Print by contemporary photographer Matt Henry. From a limited edition of 6, the print is signed and numbered by the artist.
Matt Henry is a Brighton-based photographer, whose work explores the power of fiction through the photographic medium. Inspired by the politics and culture of 1960s and 70s America, Henry’s work is driven by an attention to style and characterisation, each photograph beautifully designed, composed, and executed.
His latest project, ‘Twin Palms’ explores the lives of glamorous, monied housewives in suburban, mid-century California. Think Stepford Wives meets Thomas Pynchon: beautiful but destructive women, roaming listlessly around modernist villas, every image suffused with the eye-popping colours of a counter-cultural acid trip.
‘Gone to Vegas’ depicts a 1960s bedroom, complete with mink-coloured carpet, turquoise patterned wallpaper, and kitsch vanity stand. A pair of raspberry pink heels have been abandoned on the floor, an explanation scrawled in lipstick on the mirror: ‘gone to Vegas’. With a keen sensitivity to colour and composition, Henry’s image is arrestingly beautiful and conceptually provocative.
