Opening Reception July 19, 6-11pm
The uninteresting and unanswerable make themselves apparent in the everyday. Ubiquity abounds. Through photographs the pedestrian becomes meaningful, moments of beauty, grandeur, and simplicity, otherwise boring in the day to day are brought to light through the use of the camera.
Pevear’s photographs look to explore the banal and ubiquitous. Focusing on simple scenes found in the everyday, his photographs extract the subtle, yet complicated, imagery that exists in daily life. Splendid Tree Frog is the beginning of a series of work that explores the surface of the everyday. Not tied to a singular place or time, the work and its sequencing raises questions, leading the viewer to spend time, look, and explore.
Matthew Pevear (b. 1993, Winthrop, MA) received his BFA from the College of Visual and Performing Arts at Syracuse University in 2015. Pevear recently completed a solo exhibition with the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art in Boulder, Colorado, and has self-published two volumes of art photography books. Pevear currently lives and works in Denver, Colorado.
