Meet CHAIR-ity 2018 Artist: Paul Matte

CHAIR-ity 2018 Artist: Paul Matte

Now retired after 31 years of teaching the visual arts and photography, Paul is pursuing his own artistic career which, understandingly, has developed an educational direction.

In July 2018, his book, Open Aperture: The Evolution Of Photography In An Abstract World, will be released with North American distribution.

See examples of Paul’s work on his website: paulmatte.squarespace.com

Paul’s creation for the CHAIR-ity Art Auction is titled: A Photographic Journal

As Paul explains: “While studying my large collection of photographic memorabilia, I realized that combining photography’s past with the present into a chair could be a good way to help viewers realize how quickly photography has developed (pun intended) and how important the past is to creativity today.”

A Photographic Journal is on display at Richard’s Coffeehouse until April 13th

ACOTTI’s 2nd annual CHAIR-ity Art Auction is Friday, April 20th at the Marianne van Silfhout Gallery at St. Lawrence College, Brockville campus.
