The November show is Humanography: Shifts and Variations, an exhibit of Solarplate etchings by Greek artist Matina Marki Tillman.

In her hand-pulled, varied edition prints Tillman focuses on the importance of the motion (or lack of motion), and the weight of the instant. Working from accidental selfies, created personas, storyboarded poses of models and forgotten snapshots, she explores mood, state of mind, and response (both physical and psychological) of the human to life’s events. In these recent works, the artist observes and reports back reflections on our internal journey shaped by slight shifts and variations – changes on our way that could change the way itself.

Matina Marki Tillman was born, raised, and educated in Greece and currently lives in the United States. Her award winning work has been exhibited in multiple national and international venues.

Hours:

  • Thursday-Saturday: 11-6
  • Sunday: 12-5
