Matt Sesow
Matt is a self-taught painter who, despite having his work extensively shown and written about, has little interest in becoming part of the art network. He was hit by a landing airplane at the age of 8, which caused his left hand to be amputated and many of his works also deal with amputation and trauma.
Check out his homepage, which includes a big collection of his paintings and has some experimental short films on it. Watch the video clip "A Short by Matt Sesow", a self portrait of the artist, in which Sesow - as the description says - permits "shameless voyeurism". He allows the audience to 'take a good look'.
