Blue Hill Library November Art Show
Monday, November 1, 2021 - Tuesday, November 30, 2021
“Liminal Perceptions,” artwork by Matthew Tunnessen, will be opening at the Blue Hill Public Library on Nov. 1.
This show will feature paintings and drawings surveying the artist’s recent work. They are transitional, experimental pieces, building on previous study of the old masters (Titian, Tiepolo, Whistler, Rodin) but newly inspired by certain contemporary musical and film artists to incorporate dissonances and overlapping textures to break up and distort visual melodies. One of the ways he has analogized this goal is to seek to depict the literal space between the eye and its object, the vibrating light and air, with its optical and imaginal distortions.
Matthew Tunnessen is a largely self-taught painter and draughtsman. He lives in Surry with his wife and three children. For more information on his work, see http://www.matthewtunnessen.cargo.site.
The exhibit will be in the library’s Britton Gallery and Roland Howard Room and available for viewing during library hours for the month of November subject to the Howard Room schedule. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of artwork will go to benefit the library.
