Artist Statement

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 surfaces 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.

His work was recently shown in a solo exhibition at Julio Santiago’s Artsee on Warren Street in Hudson, New York, which included two bodies of work, one entitled Pig Out!, the other Dark Light. His work is also represented at the Lorin Marsh showroom at The New York Design Center in Manhattan
 and in various private collections.
