"Texture" featuring Patrick Matthews!

Patrick Matthews’ success is propelled by two unusual gifts. Both immediately relate to how he sees things. The weather, the smell of the forest, the sounds of water and the wildlife, the wind, the temperature, the stillness, the solitude – the color and texture of the oil paint all seem to create its own energy. And the force of these combined energies is greater than the parts. Texture indeed, the works by Matthews for his upcoming solo show seem to be sculpted. Using traditional palette knife and brush strokes with contemporary colors, each canvas has a true impressionist derivative with a unique appeal to the abstract. In Matthews’ most prominent subjects, the aspens, color is king and each leaf is found shimmering bringing the canvas to life. Pull through the aspen paintings of Patrick Matthews and find a serene mountain range, a crystal blue lake or a wild field of flowers. This May, enter into the landscape of Matthews’ mind and walk away with a genuine appreciation of nature! Beals & Abbate Fine Art is proud to announce its upcoming presentation of “Texture” from Tuesday, May 22nd to June 4th with an opening reception on Friday, May 25th from 5 – 8 PM! All are welcome!
