The artworks in this show are Mat​thew Zivich’s most recent paintings ​with some drawings. The intention for these pieces is to creatively illustrate various ​images of historical events that have ​stayed in ​the artist’s mind for no apparent reason. The images are all appropriated from ​various sources, and that gives Professor Zivich a chance to change the imagery into more ambiguous settings with suggested meanings. Some images are popular ​and may eventually be recognized. ​Professor Zivich has been unabashedly influenced by Peter Saul, David Hockney, and Malcolm Morley, mostly because of their ​subjects and sardonic humor. Professor Zivich is a tenured faculty member teaching painting, drawing and sculpture in the SVSU Department of Art
