In the mood for an artist you haven’t seen or met before? This just in from Eileen Walsh:
The Gallery at Black Rock is proud to present Supermen and Scoundrels featuring the work of artist Matt Sesow. The show will open with a reception for the artist at 6 pm on Friday, April 23, 2010.
Mr. Sesow most recently showed in the Arte Vistas Gallery in Albi, France and has shown extensively internationally and nationally. Sesow, a Washington, DC-based artist, has been labeled as an Outsider Artist but has found a great deal of success in the art world. In his career he has overcome many personal obstacles, most importantly the loss of his left (and dominant) arm to a freak accident when he was hit by a plane as a child.
His colorful and energetic painting style lend the subjects a somewhat menacing quality while often portraying benign subjects such as bunnies and pandas. In this show he will explore the dichotomy that exists within public figures. It is often unclear as to which is a superman and which is the scoundrel and ultimately it will be the viewer who decides which category the subject best fits into. Sesow will be showing all new work much of which has been painted specifically for the Gallery at Black Rock show.
The show runs April 23 until May 29, 2010. The artist will be in town for a reception one Friday, April 23 from 6 until 9 pm.
Normal Gallery hours are Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 11am until 5:30pm
