Small Beginnings | Recent Photographs by Matt Eich
September 4, 2020 @ 11:00 am - October 31, 2020 @ 5:00 pm
This exhibition of new work by Matt Eich draws from a year and a half of prolific image-making in an ongoing visual journal series titled, Seasonal Blues. This string of work links moments together like a never-ending chain. A selection of the work exists as limited-edition prints and many more appear in small-run quarterly self-published books by the emerging artist (under the imprint Little Oak Press). Time- the fleeting baseline of life itself- is revealed in Eich’s Seasonal Blues. As Eich creates this image of the world, he seeks to locate himself within it.
As we are left with emotions shaken loose by photographic memory-triggers, we wonder if perhaps it is the weight of time exposed that makes the work so palpable, and that time is naturally fleeting so we are not crushed by the gravity of our actions through it. Life is temporal and sacred. The rituals we subscribe to are not law by nature, rather designs of our own making. Through openness and compassion, we can share fears and desires. The web of intimacy surrounds us, belongs to us, and us to it.
