Matt Huynh – Amoroso

May 30, 2011

After Kozyndan, Zay and I made our way down to the city to check out ‘Amoroso’, the final installment in a year-long series of work by our friend Matt Huynh.

If you’re familiar with the Sydney indie comics scene, you may be familiar with Matt’s work. Maybe you’ve read his awesome comicbook, ‘CAB’ – which explores autobiographical stories surrounding Cabramatta. It’s warm, funny and sad all at once – if you can get your hands on a copy, I recommend you definitely check it out.

For the past year, this clever fellow has been creating a body of work based around each season, beginning in winter with ‘Asperatus’ (which you might remember from my blog post here), moving into spring with ‘Alluvia’, summer with ‘Aurora’, and now finally – autumn and ‘Amoroso’.

‘Amoroso’ was held in the Wedge Gallery at Books Kinokuniya – unfortunately this time I missed opening night, but I was still glad that we got a chance to see the final entry in his series.

As with the previous two shows (I didn’t get to see the summer installment of Aurora, as it was held in Melbourne) – the works in Amoroso have an intense dreamlike quality. I loved the vibrantly coloured Pierrots. Such a departure from both the nightmarish dreamscapes of Asperatus or the earth-toned Alluvia. Amoroso is like waking from a pleasant dream, and a fitting end to the series.

Anyway, don’t take it from me – you can check out Matt’s works here (unfortunately Amoroso finished up last week, but you can still check out the artworks at the link).
