MATTHEW ROWE

 

Farmer and poet, Matthew Rowe, uses found materials like house paint and oil pastels as a means to forge new creative pursuits beyond the written word. Just as a landscape artist might when planting a garden, Rowe disperses his limited color palette across multiple canvases creating a body of work so cohesive that several paintings come together as one larger piece. At first blush, his paintings harken back to the American abstract expressionists of the mid-20th century; artists like Helen Frankenthaler and Elaine deKooning come to mind. Over time, cityscapes and silhouettes begin to emerge, offering a more impressionistic view of the world.
