Dolby Chadwick Gallery is pleased to present Dissolution, an exhibition of new work by Matthew Scheatzle.

In his series of “wood paintings,” Scheatzle renders dynamic figures and landscapes from found wood and colored resin, often invoking a developed taxonomy of visual tropes to construct the composition. The practice is intensely physical as the artist cuts, sands, and meticulously arranges the wood on the panel; but each piece remains emotionally driven and highly introspective, enticing the viewer with abstraction of faces and figures.
