AN ARTIST’S DOUBLE LIFE
Interview with Frank Stasio

Matt Lively is a painter from Richmond. His work is iconic and whimsical, full of things like bumblebees riding bicycles and brightly colored dresses swaying in the breeze.Then there’s Matthew Lively. He’s also a painter, but his work is darker, cynical and slightly creepy. But this isn’t a segment about two artists with eerily similar names. Matt and Matthew occupy the same person… and the same mind. Although some might think this signals some sort of personality disorder, Matt disagrees–this is just his way of making a living. Matt (and Matthew’s) work is on display at Adam Cave Fine Art in Raleigh until April 29th.
