Matthew Cornell presents a new body of work that reflects the the cycle of weather and its influence on nature.

It is origin and destination - creation and destruction. The cycle of life.

"Every day the planet begins anew. Nature seeks equilibrium. It is never ending. It begins in the oceans. Water evaporates, creates storms, rains and eventually makes it way back to the sea.  It is about balance. It is about adaptation. I like the ocean because there is a rhythm to the waves that connects it to our own rhythms. The crashing waves like a heartbeat. The push and pull of the water like making love.

This work is different from earlier work as it has become grander in scale and vision. I have a tendency to do work that is created in ways that helps me, like nature, to balance. I go from small, very detailed work, to large blurred imagery and back again. But always within the realm of representaion. And almost always landscape. Some pieces have been meditative or somber landscapes in great detail and others have been violent storms of near abstraction. These extremes create a harmony. It is balance I seek for my work and for me"     Matthew
