Daina Mattis (b.1984) is a Brooklyn-based artist born in Los Angeles, CA. Her paintings, drawings, and sculptures explore perception and disposability through vehicles of imitation, scale, craft, and time. Mattis is the youngest of four children to Lithuanian immigrants. Her experience growing up in a bilingual, culturally rich home in LA greatly influences her work and how she explores visual language. Mattis was a Cooper Union A.I.R. and shows regularly. Notable solo exhibitions include Family Style, 2020, and Vessels, 2018 at High Noon Gallery, New York, NY; Bona Fide, AMAG, St. Thomas Aquinas College, NY, 2019; The Cooper Union A.I.R. Exhibition, NY, 2016; Foreign Bodies, Marymount University of California, 2013-4; and Frances Keevil Gallery, Sydney, Australia, 2010.
