Nearly Naked: An exhibition of ceramic arts by Matt Boland will show at the Saranac Art Projects gallery from August 4 through 27th.
Matt Boland strives to expose the deepest of human emotions, the secrets, the shameful moments, the disguises we all conspire to hide behind. A nearly life-long resident of Spokane with a recent Masters degree from The University of Georgia, Matt Boland strives, through the manipulation of ceramic materials, to show his inner most workings, fears, regrets, and hopes.
Matt’s work will detail the human as alien, the benign as monster.
