Matsumoto's series of large 22x28' color prints titled, Fish or Fowl, combine drawing with kitschy toys; flamingoes, frogs and plastic fish. The painterly contrast of color and texture creates artificial environments for our aesthetic consumption. Matsumoto teaches photography at Hamilton College in Clinton, NY. He received a Light Work Grant in 1991.
