Matty Pritchard is an artist and musician whose recent work centers on experimental epoxy resin paintings with sculptural qualities.

He works on both large and small scales creating luminosity within his paintings by introducing lush color palettes, reflective surfaces and internal light sources. His work incorporates abstraction through color fields and gestural marks and pattern as well as figurative elements or objects. The surfaces he creates are evocative of microscopic worlds and expansive sea or sky vistas.In order to create a dynamic and immersive effect, he uses color combinations that mimic moving aurora borealis, azure oceans and the surface of planets, configured in waves or swirls that indicate immense currents and airflows.His smaller scale works become jewel-like, emulating the detail and fluidity of Murano glass and ceramic glazes.

The experience of being in nature and imagining celestial movements is important to Prichard’s work and represented in the titles he chooses. With chinks of light at points, “Beneath a Golden Fog” has a dense and oscillating texture, and the triptych “Neptune, Mars and Venus” moves from turquoise to a fiery burst of orange.

His work can currently be seen in a solo exhibition at Julio Santiago’s Artsee Hudson on Warren Street in Hudson, New York, which includes two bodies of work, one entitled Pig Out!, the other Dark Light. In June 2021 his work will be featured in a solo pop-up gallery at Tyler Miller’s Space428 in Hudson, New York. His work is also on display at the Lorin Marsh showroom at The New York Design Center in Manhattan.
