when matt sesow was eight years old he was playing in an airfield near his home in lincoln nebraska...as a small plane landed his left arm was severed above the elbow by the one of the propellers...recently with the account of his friend matt reconstructed the incident and documented it on the back of his painting guided to the runway
los angeles self taught and educated artist carol es who is also a survivor of a traumatic childhood experience introduced me to the artistry of matt sesow...highly intrigued by the plethora of brutally passionate art available for view on his website i arranged to meet matt on a perfect summer sunday afternoon at his studio and home in adams morgan washington dc...
when i arrived matt was on the phone...a rare occurrence since matt spends his days isolated inside his studio thrashing his innermost being into visual expression...i left a message on his voicemail saying i was waiting outside to gain entrance to the building...after ten mintues as i was ready to call again matt appeared on the doorstep and greeted me...
once inside his studio i was intoxicated by the stimulating and alarming red brightness that characterizes the majority of his artwork decking the halls and walls of his flat...since the essence of art supplies wafting through the air permeated my bloodstream i refused the beer he offered me and instead immersed myself in the words of a man who in spite of his modesty and shyness is living the life of a truly dedicated artist...a life he did not foresee or plan but happened on by circumstance and perhaps fate as if his guide to the runway predestined his course of life
his former wife artist carole mccallum introduced matt to the world of art...as they dated matt challenged himself to paint as he desired to develop an intimate connection with the woman he loved...with the moral support of carole a confident powerful and uniquely individual artistic articulation manifested in vivid color...although much of his work expresses the trauma of his past matt courageously lives and breathes in the present and moves forward into the future with the ever changing political and social climate of our society
matt earns a decent living as an artist...after saving his earnings from a career in the computer field he was able to buy his studio on columbia road in northwest dc...his talents allow him to maintain his own website and coordinate his gallery appearances all over the united states...he also has a substantial amount of collectors who have a vested interest in his work...driven to succeed yet stay clear of the influence of mainstream manipulation one of his goals as an artist is to make art accessible to everyone
as we spoke that afternoon between his natural and easy interaction with patrons matt told me of his desire to return to a deeper and more intimate expression of darkness and hopelessness...a subconscious release of intense emotion matt has seemingly overcome as he has risen from darkness into the light through his art...
