Lamp; Landscape Illuminated
Oil on course linen | 2023
Space is the next frontier for artist Mathew Tucker. In an evolution of his focus on landscape imagery, Tucker now takes his work further, broadening the perimeter beyond the bounds of our planet to bridge the epic and the everyday, the surreal and the sublime. By heading farther afield in his subject matter, Tucker helps the viewer recognize vital connections between the familiar and the celestial. Across slightly illogical and surreal composites of everyday objects and imagined landscapes, the series evokes the history of sublime landscape painting as well as the more recent genres of science fiction and fantasy.

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