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.

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.
