Artist Statement: Matthew Hoffman, who works under the moniker Sighn, speaks of the vulnerability of emotions and materializes via text-based objects, hoping to connect us as humans. He states that “the pieces tend to deliver a hug, a pat on the back, or a chuckle.” By using immediate and fleeting phrases, one is able to absorb the stream of consciousness continuously running through his work. His phrases are melancholic and elegiac, while simultaneously leaving the viewers feeling therapeutically better about themselves.

Artist Bio: Matthew Hoffman is a Chicago-based artist, known for his work behind Multi Polar Projects. Working under various alter egos, Hoffman's work has been shown internationally and featured in magazines from Readymade to Good Magazine to The New York Times Magazine. His work balances the line between compassion and sarcasm, with a firm belief in constant collaboration. His largest and most demanding project, ITSOK, is a hand cut "limited" edition of 1,000,000 and is estimated for completion in the next 50 years.
