Statement

Matthew G. Beall - An American vision driven painter and fine art photographer living in Germany.

My art is a combination of rigorous precision and open-ended exploration. I explore core aesthetic issues through non-objective, reductive and geometric abstraction. The crux of this exploration lies primarily in examining the complex relationship among white, black and gray, with the occasional painterly brushstroke of color adding a tactile quality to otherwise smooth or "cool" abstractions.

My work explores this balance as it is played out through different paint textures and colors, particularly dark forms of varying opacity grappling with lighter ones, as well as the moments of transformation when line thickens and becomes dimensional shape, and precisely when color changes from subjective expressionism to formal minimalism. Ultimately, my work is an exploration of the evocative powers of color and form when distilled down to their essentials.
