Oil on canvas | 2020
Continuing his approach to painting as a means to create a sense of place, Tucker’s paintings as part of his Openings series function as portals into surreal constructed landscapes. By playing with perspective and the picture plane, Tucker draws the viewer in, collapsing space and oscillating between depth and surface as it is revealed that he has depicted a painting within a painting. As with the works in his Meta-Paintings series, these paintings transcend the content of the imagery and become paintings about painting and the experience of presence, looking, and seeing.

Q. Describe your work in three words:
A. Landscape, interiors and portals, but I think the emphasis is always subtly shifting.
We invite you to explore our curated collection of abstract artworks by Tappan artists.
Framing & Mounting
Our frames are produced from the best quality wood, primarily from Italy. Each is custom cut and assembled by hand to fit your art. Hanging hardware included!
THIN GALLERY FRAME
This modern profile was designed for artists and photographers. Narrow on the front and deep on the sides, our slim mouldings provide a clean, sharp frame for your art, and allows all focus to be on your gorgeous work.
3/4" wide; 1 1/8" deep
UV - PROTECTIVE ACRYLIC
Our acrylic is more expensive than glass, but we use it because it’s clearer, far more impact resistant, and protects your art against UV rays. Framing-grade acrylic has become a new standard in framing because of its “clear” benefits.
THE FULL BLEED
Works are framed flush with the edge of your print without a mat. Request border modifications and spacers, which keep the work from touching the glass.
Adds a white core mat with a bevel cut opening to the edge of your print. If your work has a signature or edition numbering, we will automatically mat around it unless otherwise specified.
We use 4-ply, conservation-grade, acid-free mat board. We match whites and off-whites to your exact piece. Acid-free materials protect your art from yellowing or becoming brittle.
Floating a piece allows for a full view of the face and sides of the artwork. Floating is recommended for original drawings and paintings or any piece produced on specially trimmed paper.
Brooklyn-based painter Mat Tucker's painting and drawing practice focuses on large, surreal landscapes. The practice Mat's words: "In recent years my work has focused on re-imagining landscapes as though looking through a window, an opening or a portal... This also plays with a broader metaphor of our internal experience of looking out upon an external, separate, physical world." Recent features include: ArtMaze, Fresh Paint, and Create Magazine.
