At Wolff Gallery

show

Lorena Guerra Matteucci aka M3AT

First Friday opening reception:
July 6, 6:00-8:00 PM

Wolff is pleased to present Fragmented Fruits, an exhibition by local artist M3AT that represents a year spent working through infertility, loss, depression, and new beginnings. Through the symbolism in their paintings, M3AT offers a look into what many women experience; a quiet, painful, and often shame-filled struggle with infertility that is often kept hidden. The artist has documented their personal journey as they move beyond the pain of the past and battle the unrealistic standards that society has set for women. This body of work is the first ever of its kind by M3AT and signifies a new chapter of growth in their life.

M3AT is the alias of Lorena Guerra Matteucci, a painter based in Vancouver, Washington. The artist received an associate’s degree in graphic design from Brooks College in Long Beach, CA in 2005 and pursued a graphic design career until 2014 when they decided to concentrate on fine art full-time. They have exhibited in various galleries and retail spaces in Los Angeles, CA; Portland, and Lake Oswego, OR; Dallas, TX; Mesa, AZ; New York, NY; and the International Coalition for Human Rights in the Philippines. M3AT has been published in St. Sucia (Texas) zines and their work will be published later this year in APEP Publications (Maryland) and the Buckman Journal (Portland, OR). They have also completed two murals in the Alberta Arts District in Portland.
