Mata’s painting at an Elizabeth, N.J. skatepark.

Elmi Mata examines one's social coding through the medium of oil paint. His investigation rests on the narrative format and the discursive frame by which the subject can be analyzed.

Mata's independent studio projects have been funded by The Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation with recent publication in New American Paintings. He holds a BFA from The Cleveland Institute of Art (2016) and an MFA in painting from The Tyler School of Art and Architecture (2018). Residency participation includes the Skowhegan School of Painting and Sculpture (2019).

Image from the 2022 Queering the Muse exhibition at Dickinson College's Trout Gallery.

Queering the Muse features the work of contemporary photographer Lissa Rivera and her genderqueer romantic partner, B.J. Lillis, who serves as her collaborator and creative muse. Drawing from a vast array of sources ranging from ancient art to surrealism and from classic Hollywood film to independent cinema, Rivera pictures Lillis in a variety of settings and in costumes rich with historical reference. Through her photographs, she brings visibility to an overlooked subject—the genderqueer body—in order to challenge the gender binary and complicate how we define and understand beauty.

This exhibition is curated by senior art-history majors Ellery Coleman, Emma Latham, Bethany Petrunak, Peter Philips, Frances Taylor and Ellie Werner, under the direction of Associate Professor of Art History Elizbeth Lee.
