Mat Dubé, visual artist
Railbender Gallery presents Body of Thought, a solo exhibit by Ottawa artist Mat Dubé. The show will include 20 paintings, all of which were created using a new technique that Dubé developed this past summer while participating in an artist residency in Paonia Colorado. This unique process allows him to merge sculpture, drawing and painting together in a two-dimensional space.
Body of Thought is a series of paintings inspired by the endless flow of deeply rooted questions, fears and insecurities that constantly bombard us. The pieces illustrate subtle facial expressions and simple hand gestures that attempt to capture and expose the feelings and thoughts we display both consciously and subconsciously. The resulting characters reveal the subtle body language with which we all communicate on a primordial level.
