Matthew Paul Cleary
Brooklyn, NY



ARTIST STATEMENT: When I create a new work, I make it a point to reach as far back as possible. I consider the whole of art history in order to find my place in the conversation. I attempt to have a dialogue with ancient eastern philosophies, specifically Japanese Ink Painters, exploring the balance between chance and intent. I have also tackled the subject of faith, making use of occult idolatry and symbolism as a platform to understand how we comprehend and cope with our existence. Recently my interest is in Plato’s opposition to the practice of perspective in painting.
