Capaldo's figurative paintings explore the relationship of the self to others and the shifting nature of the individual within and apart from society. The mysterious narrative pull of these intimate, small works offer more questions than answers. Through deliberate, careful rendering, Capaldo’s work balances a tension between flux and stillness, saturation and transparency. The nostalgic tone of the work appears in both form and process. “I’m referencing the past and external, seemingly unrelated images to reveal an internal landscape,” explains the artist. Matthew Capaldo is a year-round Provincetown resident.  He holds a BA in English Literature from Boston University.

Opening Reception: Friday, June 17th, 6-9pm
