Guest speaker Isabel Mattia spoke to students about her artwork and its inspiration ahead of her upcoming February exhibit in the Hunter Gallery at the Brown Bag Lunch event on Jan. 22.
St. George’s Spectrum Alliance sponsored the event and club heads Tim Pozhitkov ’19 (pictured above center) and Lexi Sinskey ’18 (pictured above right) introduced Mattia, who talked about her own high school experience, being an artist, and exploring and expressing identity through artwork.
Mattia has a bachelor’s degree from Brown University with a double concentration in Visual Art and Africana Studies. About 21 students and faculty members attended the event, which was held at the Academic Center.
Mattia offered advice to student artists such as the value of always documenting your work to preserve it for the future and not putting a lot of pressure on yourself.
The artwork in Mattia’s exhibit at the Hunter Gallery will explore concepts of overlapping identities, gray areas in life, and words and objects with multiple meanings. Her exhibit will explore what defines drawings and sculptures and how the two can be blended together like identity.
“I started thinking about how with labeling and language around gender and sexuality ... our relationships to language and our gender and sexuality can be very confusing,” Mattia said. “Language is always changing.”
