Matt King's Veneers is an invitation to view the surface underneath, the veneer revealed. Matt explains that "this work expresses the dichotomy of turning inside out what we all seek to hide behind in order to expose what is innermost within myself." This work addresses how we construct veneers to wear; it takes an unflinching look at what such masks represent and what they hide.
