Visit with Matthew Shelley

Matthew Shelley’s latest works overlay traditional views of landscapes in a non-traditional format. Found photographs accented with ethereal tones are laid upon folded paper, creating a multi-dimensional experience. Evan’s works were exhibited alongside works by Luckey Remington and Evan Bellantone at Art on Paper, New York in March 2016.

“I always think about the big spaces in these pictures being forced into the small space of a format and composition.”

“That collision, of big space and small space, really fascinates me. It reminds me of trying to organize something that is impossible to organize, or trying to catalogue something that really resists it.”
