Oil and acrylic on canvas | 2022
A new collection of not-quite-believable paintings from Brooklyn-based artist Mathew Tucker, “Through-scapes” explores a yearning to experience sublime landscapes by imagining spaces that feel familiar, but in reality could never exist. Each image depicts something we look through, such as a doorway, window, or portal to a vista beyond and the longer one gazes into these imagined scenes, the more irrational or nonsensical they become. By using paint to unify the objects and landscapes in the image, Tucker manages to bridge a perceived division between humankind and nature.

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