DESCRIPTION

 "Matt Dibble has created two distinct, almost opposed bodies of work since the 1980’s. Probably he’s best known for his numerous experimental, gesture-filled paintings, wholly abstract and executed in a heavily textured, expressive manner. But if those works seem to respond to the clamor and complexity of life, his other paintings, more rarely exhibited, turn inward. They explore a tentative figural subject matter which in the context of Dibble’s abstractions is like a search for spiritual renewal. These are the works that make up the fascinating show Puzzled Bipeds at Tregoning & Co".~Douglas Max Utter is an exhibiting painter and art critic based in Cleveland,Ohio. https://www.instagram.com/douglasmaxutter/

"Matt Dibble’s Puzzled Biped series presents an enigmatic array of converging forms that puzzle and delight. The figures are ambiguous hybrids of animals and humans, sometimes encased in architectural structures.  He rearranges body parts, some articulated; other’s obscure, with continuous contour lines that convey volume and mass.  The images seem to carry an abundance of historical and aesthetic references, including Ancient Greek vase painting, Ancient Roman architecture, Pop Art, and the figure drawings of Matisse, among others".~Carol Heft is a New York City based artist and educator. https://www.facebook.com/Carol.B.Heft
