SURREAL ART IN A SURREAL TIME:  Two Artists Reinterpret the Everyday

The works of Ross Alan Bachelder and David Matson

September 25, 2020 to October 14, 2020

 

 

“Artist, author and musician Ross Alan Bachelder has worked in several genres over the past twenty-five years, but his greater time and energies have been devoted more and more to found object assemblages and two-dimensional works in acrylic.

 

“Our exhibit here at Chocolate Church just happens to be the very first time I’ve ever featured just one genre in the same exhibit,” says Bachelder. “More often than not, my exhibits are an intentionally themeless array of genres and approaches, leaning happily toward the wild side. My philosophy as a creative has always been ‘anything goes,’ and I eventually decided that the galleries will either have to accept that truth about me or send me along to a more conventional gallery. That, of course, is their right and their privilege.

 

“But the good news for me is that, given Carina Wishman’s independent spirit, and her unusual openness to fresh approaches,

I feel truly at home when exhibiting at Chocolate Church. And believe me, I’m more than merely thankful for that!”– Ross Alan Bachelder,

 

David Matson is a non-practicing Episcopal priest and follower of Zen with an attraction to Jewish Mystical Thought, among other things.

“I made many of my own toys as a child, and I guess I still am.

I didn’t set out to make explicitly topical pieces for this show, but, there you go.”

David lives and works in Readfield, Maine.
