Lecture by Artist Matthew Fishel, '01: On his work

September 19
4:45 PM
 - 
5:45 PM
Library 321

Matthew Fishel '01 was born in Washington, D.C. He attended St. Mary's College of Maryland, graduating in 2001 with a BA in Art, and earned his MFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art in 2010. He now lives and works in Baltimore, MD in the Remington neighborhood. Since earning his MFA, he has taught drawing at St. Mary's College of Maryland and led workshops on the use of digital tools by artists. Matthew has exhibited nationally, recently in Seattle and Massachusetts. His first solo show was in 2011, at the Fine Arts Work Center.

Originally interested in painting, Matthew has expanded his practice to include animation, video, installation, and digital imaging. Raised by a television journalist in a home that celebrated Star Trek as philosophical way stone, his work is devoted to critically relating what is imagined to what is material. Matthew often works with techniques used in commercial film production and video games such as CG animation and model making, seeking uses for these technologies for an independent studio art practice.

Matthew has been a contributor to RedStarKGB, a collaboration of filmmakers in Baltimore. He has contributed to projects as actor, composer, writer and director. His own film, "A Short Film Regarding Possibilities", was selected by the Maryland Film Festival in 2006. In 2012, Matthew began a new long distance collaboration with artist Jason Irla called SuperNotSpecial, an open-ended series of experiments in video art.
