Event Description

Please join us Thursday, May 30th from 5-6pm for an evening of discussion on the late Matt Phillips (1927–2017) the master of monotype printing, with special guest speaker Susannah Hays, PhD. 

As a monotype releases itself from plate to paper, so too is the artist's analogue reflection. How the monotype provided the perfect channel for keeping artist Matt Phillips freely in tune with the natural world will be illuminated when looking closely at the poetic work he created between 1956 and 2016.
Artist and educator Susannah Hays met Matt Phillips in the late 1980s. Married from 1991-1997, they continued a meaningful friendship until his passing in 2017. She was responsible for conserving his 1960s and '70s monotypes, until her fine art practice emerged in 1998. Whether monotype or photogram, work on paper or artist book their enduring friendship was sustained by intangible affinities such as grace and spirit.

This evening is sponsored by Arthur L. Frank, MD, PhD, professor and chair emeritus of the Department of Environmental and Occupational Health at the Dornsife School of Public Health, and his wife Joanne B. Frank, who generously funded the exhibition

The event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP
