"Of the Moment: Jody Mattison, Figurative Painter"
2000-06-19 until 2000-06-30
Academy of Art College Gallery
San Francisco, CA, USA United States of America

Jody Mattison is a realist figurative painter from the Bay Area, culminating her Masters of Fine Art studies with a graduate show in San Francisco. Jodys works are a combination of traditional realist and contemporary techniques, blending the tonality and detail of classical realism with her own strong interpretation of life through the contemporary female gaze.

...The return to narrative and figurative work is an important moment in that it heralds an acknowledgement of the importance of the common viewer in the transformative process of the work of art. [Walnut Creek] painter Jody Mattison is an excellent example of an artist who is concerned with the nature of arts ability to communicate, to engage the viewer in a discourse of discovery. Using allegory and symbolism she creates with her work open spaces that welcome and encourage interpretation. The intimate moment, the shared humorous glance, the psychological punch of the work, not to mention the consummate technical skill, these elements insure the possibility of a transformative experience....
- John Dobson, The Transformative Moment
