DESCRIPTION

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.

“I like the idea of entangling nature with a sense of escapism, meditation, surrealism and the sublime.”

About the Artist

Mathew Tucker

Connecticut based painter Mathew Tucker’s painting and drawing practise focuses on large, surreal landscapes, The practise in Mat’s words: "In recent years my work has focused on re-imaging landscapes as though looking through a window, an opening or a portal….this also plays on a broader metaphor of our internal experience of looking out upon an external, separate, physical world.” Recent awards and features include: The CUE-Aon Artist Empowerment Award 2021 and features in Maake Magazine and ArtMaze.
