RESEARCH AREAS – Printmaking
Noah was raised by a pack of wild coyotes that roamed the snowcapped mountains of the Sierra Nevada. When he became of age he headed west, in search of adventure, acclaim, and higher education. He stopped at the Pacific Ocean and settled in among the redwood groves of the University of California at Santa Cruz. Here, at college, a fire began to burn inside him for all things printmaking. Day and night he studied the occult arts of lithography, intaglio, and… (dare I say it?) digital printing. Four years later, Matteucci graduated, to much cheering and applause. Then-Governor, Arnold Schwarzenegger, signed his diploma. To this day Matteucci doesn’t know how to feel about this.
Later, while basking in the glory of his success, Matteucci felt deep within him, somewhere near his bowels, a growing feeling of restlessness. Against all odds he headed west again, traveling coach (the horror… oh, the horror!) across three thousand miles of ocean to the University of Hawai‘i, an academic community nestled in the moist and muggy Manoa valley. Extensive graduate study ensued which culminated in his thesis exhibition, void loop ( ), a mixed-media installation involving dot matrix printers printing sound and light into shredders, nonstop. This triumph of matter and form has undoubtedly earned Matteucci a Lecturer position at the UH, where we can find him working today. The rest of his story has yet to be told…
