Not Vital was born in Switzerland in 1948 in a small village in the Endagine Valley. Over the decades he has traveled the world and expanded his vision through his art. Always enigmatic, he finds a way to touch the heart and soul of the cultures he interacts with. I'm proud to say he had his first show in America at Mendelson Gallery, and we remain the best of friends.
"Legendary Photography, painter, and maker of objects and films, Man Ray was on the most versatile and inventive artists of this century. Born in Philadelphia in 1890, he knew the worlds of Greenwich Village in the avant garde era following the 1913 Armory show; Paris in the 1920's and 1930's, where he played a key role in the Dada and Surrealist movements; The Hollywood of the 1940s, where he joined others chased by war from their homes in Europe; and finally, Paris again until his death in 1976.

In 1980, Haring found a highly effective medium that allowed him to communicate with the wider audience he desired, when he noticed the unused advertising panels covered with matte black paper in a subway station. He began to create drawings in white chalk upon these blank paper panels throughout the subway system. Between 1980 and 1985, Haring produced hundreds of these public drawings in rapid rhythmic lines, sometimes creating as many as forty “subway drawings” in one day. This seamless flow of images became familiar to New York commuters, who often would stop to engage the artist when they encountered him at work. The subway became, as Haring said, a “laboratory” for working out his ideas and experimenting with his simple lines.

Ben Matthews continues his exploration into a unique, fantastical and sometimes unsettling universe. The characters from this place exist at the edges of sideshows, of archaic advertisement and of storybooks none of which ever quite manifested themselves in our reality. Works on canvas and on folding, triptych panels unveil a mysteriously disconcerting series of images and scenes from this not-quite time/place.
