Carnegie Art Center: Matt Madson & Jim Wrayge

April 10 - April 27

Opening Reception: April 12, 5-7pm

Shared Space presents the works of recently passed Jim Wrayge and his 30-year-long studio partner Matt Madson. This exhibition will feature a retrospective of Wrayge’s works, as well as recent paintings by Madson. The Artist Talk will take place during the Mankato Art Crawl and be presented by Matt Madson and Jim Wrayge’s partner Erica Christ. Free to attend, all are welcome!

“My paintings present imagery contained in the world of wilderness and in the worldvof the city; illuminating the parallels of nature and the man made world. My compositions are influenced by the erosion, aging, weather, and light that occurs in both settings. I explore the contrasts between both worlds visually and emotionally. I use layers of textures; the opaque and the transparent intertwine with monochromatic hues and vivid color. Painting is my adventure in which the journey is a manifestation of my values. I paint what I paint because I absolutely love it. I am not interested in narration orvnostalgia. I am not an object painter.”
