Matt Sesow produces an uncommon and somewhat obsessive number of paintings from Washington, DC. After an aircraft propeller severed his left arm at age eight, Matt survived amputation and discovered painting as an emotional response to trauma. Today his works are collected worldwide. Life and Limb spans Matt's career since 1994, featuring works inspired by friendship with Baron and Ellin Gordon, world travels and residencies, and visits to Norfolk. This is first in a series of solo exhibitions by artists represented in the permanent collection of the Baron and Ellin Gordon Art Galleries.
