Copro Gallery presents MENTON3 'FAY' an exploration into the world of the fairy folk and the lore surrounding the subject. Menton has had a lifelong interest in the relationship between symbols, signs and images and that part of ourselves we most commonly refer to as "unconscious". Though he has always drawn and painted, his first methodical exploration of this field was through music, which he saw as a tool enabling a composer to bring to light 'interior' imagery in the listener and reveal frozen phantasmagoric instants, realized subjective memories and encapsulated emotions.Says Menton, "Many of the mythological, religious, alchemical, and historical icons, symbolic figures and shapes stimulate, if not summon, internal functions."
Menton J. Matthews lll / menton3 is a self-taught painter, illustrator, and fine artist. His personal axiom is, "externalizing the internal so that resolution is a forgone conclusion." His subject matters are drawn from daily meditation, alchemical writings, symbology, and Jungian psychology. He frequently creates his own mediums from scratch, adding to the unique property of each individual work he produces. menton3 has an extensive history in comics and graphic novels as an illustrator, colorist, writer, cover artist, and creator. Some of his more well-known works include, The Memory Collectors, The X-Files, Transfusion, Silent Hill: Past Life, ZVR, The Fly and Monocyte. He also served as the co-creator, designer and editor of the TOME and EXPLICITUS EST LIBER art anthology series.
