and life. On April 22, Charriol will be opening his new exhibition

Q:Who/What is your biggest
influence or inspiration right now?

How would you describe the work your gallery specializes in?

and artists that work on paper. Most of the work I represent has a
strong conceptual element and fine craftsmanship. I think there is a
relationship between all the varied work I show due to my personal

work that I have been developing over the last decade. Smoke paintings,
paintings, and by-products have all evolved from a determination to find
intelligent and elegant solutions to challenges posed by a history of
painting.- Matthew Satz
