Stuck and Strung is a collaboration between Boston-area artist Sable Matula and Brooklyn-based painter Torey Akers. Across a variety of disciplines, Matula and Akers meditate on the visual and affectual impacts of gesture in space. Matula's  slinking sculptural swathes hint at themes of transmutation and hybridity, 

while Akers's drawings, paintings, and Victorian-inspired reliefs identify the weird and the wild aspects of pandemic-era intimacy. Stuck and Strung threads devotion through action, speaking the slow choke of time into a tactile plane. 

Torey Akers is a Brooklyn-based artist and writer who has shown her work across the country. She received her MFA in Painting from Cranbrook Academy of Art in 2016, and has attended artist residencies at Vermont Studio Center, MASS MoCA, Arts, Letters & Numbers, AIR Studios Paducah, and Penland School of Craft.
Sable Matula is a Boston-area based artist who primarily works with discarded materials. She received her MFA from Boston University in 2015. Her work has been featured in numerous publications, including The Boston Globe.
