Additional notes from seller:
Painter Paul Matthews a contemporary artist does not paint portraits, he paints what he calls "peoplescapes" and landscapes. Matthews works primarily with oil on canvas, often beginning with a wiping technique so that the light of the gesso ground is visible. Stylistically he has been described as a post-abstract expressionist. He is very interested in capturing the true nature of his subjects, encompassing both the good and evil which exists in us all. Matthews' paintings are narrative in nature; his groups of nudes, although often initially disturbing, draw the viewer into the story behind the image. He has taught at Gill/ St. Bernard's School, and at Parsons School of Design. Matthews' work has often encountered controversy; in 1968, three of his paintings were removed from the jury lounge in the Bucks County Courthouse in Doylestown, because it was feared that they would be found controversial by their "captive" audience. Matthews exhibits locally at Phillips' Mill and Riverrun Gallery. He has participated in group shows with local artists Charles Wells and George Anthonisen
