Constructed Photographs: Darrell Matsumoto Exhibit

This October the Community College of Rhode Island will be hosting Constructed Photographs (1989 - 2009), an exhibition by Chester College faculty member Darrell Matsumoto. Matsumoto is both an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Photography, Media Arts and Design.

Matsumoto describes his work: “I attempt to make work that can engage and seduce, to report, to explicate. I am interested in making metaphors. I admire the elegance of haiku, however I am drawn to opera. If it were possible the synthesis of haiku and opera is the work I aspire to make.” This exhibition shows both elements, simplicity and color extravaganza through carefully constructed photographs.

Constructed Photographs opens on Thursday, October 1st, from 5 to 7 PM in the campus Art Gallery, with an artist talk to take place at 6 PM. The exhibition will be running through October 29th. For more information contact Viera Levitt,
