Matthew E. Phelan thinks of his art as reanimation. He digs through images born of histories largely forgotten and then breathes new life into these relics. Weaving them together to create something different. In silent collaboration with photographers long dead, he invites the viewer to glance into the past. But not the shared, agreed upon past. A new past. Looking backwards into the multiverse. Through a glass, darkly.
