Matt Pidgeon has been a painter for most of his life and employs various mediums including acrylic, oil, and enamel on canvas. Pidgeon has been featured in numerous galleries throughout New England and New York. His work has been acquired by both public and private collectors, residential and commercial.
Pidgeon is heavily influenced by the works of Wassily Kandinsky, Jackson Pollock, Picasso, and Braque. He paints with a great passion for music and incorporates mood evoking color and movement into his works. The process is meticulous and involves hours of painting, viewing, and reflecting.
This will be Matt’s second exhibition with the Rochester Museum of Fine Arts. His work was last showcased in a vacant storefront window. This will be his first solo exhibition in the Bernier Room.
