Multiple Exposures Gallery is pleased to present new work by Janet Matthews – TANGLED. This work will be on exhibit February 11 – March 9, 2020 and a reception will be held on February 15, 2020 from 2:00 – 4:00pm at the gallery.

About the Work
While recovering from a serious health event, I found comfort in exploring and making photographs of woodlands. The vines and trees became forms to contemplate, puzzles to solve, maps to decipher, and iconography to translate – a way to process the thoughts on mortality that occupied my mind. The resulting photographs are documents of that process.
– Janet Matthews
