October 8-December 10: The Sky Is Lemon Lime
by Baltimore artist Jenee Mateer

Monday-Saturday, 9 am-5 pm; Sunday, 9 am-2 pm

Baltimore artist Jenee Mateer’s work is about pushing boundaries, exploring the mercurial oppositions between language and picture, beautiful and horrific, fate and chance, real and virtual, natural and unnatural, technology and humanity. This body of work is a continuation of the Break Boundary series, where she began to push the boundary between photography and painting, between the natural and the unnatural.

Jenee Mateer creates landscapes composed of multiple original photographs of trees bordering lakes in New York and Michigan and a salt pond in Delaware. Mateer references ideas from science, religion, art history, philosophy, and linguistics.
