Matt Duffin: Retrospection

Gilman Contemporary

Matt Duffin's encaustic paintings use primarily black and white tones with selected pops of color to bring attention to his irreverent subjects. Employing simplicity within the imagery allows the painstaking qualities of his methodology to shine. Encaustic works are made using wax to which pigment has been added. The wax is heated, applied to a prepared wood surface, and shaped using special brushes and tools. To achieve this level of detail requires exactitude and skill. Considering the rigorous amount of time it takes to complete each piece, it is no surprise that Duffin's themes tend to explore nostalgia, solitude and irony.

Paul Béliveau

Gilman Contemporary

Paul Béliveau’s Morandi is inspired by the often pastel-toned works of Italian painter Giorgio Morandi. While Béliveau has treated book spines as subject matter before, in the Morandi series the books themselves, rather than the text that decorates their covers, are treated as the aesthetic quality. Outside reference to author, subject, and image is missing and instead, Béliveau revels in the shape and volume of the books responding and building upon each other as a methodical convergence of color and form.

Presented in partnership with the Pioneer Montessori School, come hear best-selling author Julie King introduce parents of children ages two to twelve to the language that reduces conflict, strengthens connection, and promotes cooperation between adults and children.
