Chasing the Thing: The River Fugue Series featuring original oil paintings, ceramic sculptures, & vessels by Bernard Mattox. A Closing Reception will be held on Thursday, July 26 from 4:00 pm-7:00 pm.
The artist’s statement about this series: “Though solitude is not the direct theme of the work, it is the guidepost and first principle of having lived the last 27 years in the deep woods, some 40 miles from the place of my birth in N.O.L.A. I am more archaeologist than artist, forever excavating and resurrecting the strata of images from my own interior life, so what and where is the sources rarely litters of narrative in the traditional sense. The imagery in dreams is collective and available to all and you could fill the Astrodome with books that have attempted to interpret and account for them.”
