No, did you? Matt Chinian has. Chinian documents places and scenes that present fascinating color fields. He paints typically overlooked locales asking to be found. Many of his works are recorded in and around the Capital Region, maybe even in your town. Enjoy Chinian’s wandering eye through his painterly hand that depicts the beautiful to the sublime in this lovely exhibition of his works.
