Matthew Kassar (1968) interprets his paintings with great sensitivity and sensibility.
His technique produces sculptural illusions. By choosing the right piece of newspaper cuttings, Matthew manages to intermingle his paintings and collages, to produce certain effects. And since he uses gesso, varnish, paint and sand, these give texture and like a big jigsaw puzzle, he produces real, acute and clear subjects, some geometrical and some figuratively. The paintings present the viewer with an illusion of forms and volumes.
Subjects vary from churches, chapels, portals, balconies, still lives, figures, cityscapes etc. Matthew’s creative spirit makes one marvel at, how from an object that usually gets outdated, he can make use of it to intermingle with history and scenery and makes it throb with reality. He produces an actual dreamy atmosphere of serenity, peace, tranquillity and rest.
