As humans, our experiences over a lifetime create a complex, layered filter that influence how we respond to the world around us. In Layers, a new exhibition coming to ArtReach St. Croix in January 2014, we will bring together artists whose life experiences are reflected in the layering techniques they use to create photo art, contemporary fiber art and gouache and ink paintings.Matt Gillett – photo art
A resident of Marine of St. Croix, Matt Gillett has been photographing things he finds beautiful for years in order to share the beauty and love he found in the world around him. He began taking steps beyond photography and began creating works of art that involves blending photographic images using digital craft and special printing techniques. The resulting layered photo art is more akin an abstract painting.

Light is defined as “the form of energy that makes it possible to see things” by the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. In art, how that energy interacts with the subject and the medium impacts the final piece of work. Capturing Light, an upcoming exhibition at ArtReach St. Croix, features three artists whose art focuses on the relationship between subject and light in their paintings and blown glass.
