  1. […] Matthew Langley spoke to us in May of 2020 and again just now at the end of October. Throughout the pandemic he has been able to get into the studio four or five times a week in a building that is closed to visitors and has strict safety protocols for those who hold space there. He finds this studio time a much needed escape from the atmosphere of pandemic and political talk in which we find ourselves. Langley screen prints, paints and runs a zine.
