Mattila + Martin: Painting & Collage Exhibition

Donna Mattila:
"In his 'Notebooks', George Braque wrote 'In art there is only one thing that counts; the thing you can't explain'. This is how I think about writing about my painting; either it works or it doesn't. My imagery originates from many walks in residential areas and urban streets,"
