  • Matt Allyn Chapman: “Out There From Right Here — In this solo exhibition, Out There From Right Here: new works, I explore the act of traveling and the concept of distance. Using the confines of their surfaces, the works use the space given to them. Bumping against the edges, floating and drifting safely inside their boundaries, the speak about the infinite and the limited. How far can one go when in such a perceivably small?
