Matthew Lively's exhibition at the Red Door Gallery grew in part from work he's created for an upcoming film.
The Wind Chill Factory, being shot here now by one of Lively's former students, Alexander Germanotta, combines stop-action photography with live action. Lively explains, "It's about this wind-chill factory started to combat global warming."
Lively, known primarily for his paintings, created 20 miniature houses under hand-blown glass domes for this show, which runs from April 17 to May 23. The house motif returns Lively to his starting point; before stepping out of the workaday world 15 years ago, the artist made house portraits on commission.
This is Lively's 20th solo exhibition, and besides the houses, there'll be a slew of paintings on display. For more information, visit matthewlively.com or reddoorgalleryrichmond.com.
