Painting Backdrop Picture
Walther and Franz Koenig Verlag

Matthew Lutz-Kinoy's first monograph 'Painting Backdrop Picture' is dedicated to his paintings, featuring in chronological order more than 160 reproductions of his work produced during the last decade. Born in 1984 in Brooklyn, NY, the artist is known for his large format paintings, often installed like tapestries, wall panels or suspended ceilings that depict intermingling scenes of animals, vegetables, minerals and human bodies. Lutz-Kinoy's work asserts matters of pleasure, color, intimacy, motion, as fundamental. His paintings look through a history of representation from the rococo to orientalism to abstract expressionism; challenging what constitutes the inside and the outside of the arts, the social and the self. This publication is accompanied by a text on Lutz-Kinoy's practice written by the artist Amy Sillman.
