Throughout the month of July, Matthew Verticchio’s amazing artwork will be on display in the lobby of the North Riverside Mall Theatre. The theatre will feature one or multiple artists for most of the months during 2013. See a movie and check out some talented local artists.
Matthew Verticchio is an extremely versatile artist, working in everything from oil paintings and machinist sketches to large-scale, interactive installations. Verticchio earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Kenyon College, where he was awarded the Peterson Prize in Art. The paintings he will display in July are an offshoot of a project he began last year. The artist takes an innovative approach to these paint renderings, by blowing up his sketches on overhead projectors, and then translating the image into blocks of color.
