When Matt Rich makes his abstract paintings, all the painting has already been done. His colorful geometric works are created by assembling pre-painted strips of paper in a versatile and reactive process.
“The abstract painter is traditionally bold,” Rich said. “You know, the gesture of the individual. I’m trying to make it more accessible.”
Rich will speak about his art, process and studio environment at 7 p.m. tonight in the Hultquist Center, the last of Visual Arts at Chautauqua Institution’s Visual Arts Lecture Series this season.
