Artist Crush: Matthew Weston Taylor

These paintings are from the series nl (which stands for naked lunch, a reference to dejeuner paintings such as Le déjeuner sur l’herbe) by West Coast artist Mattthew Weston Taylor. I am honored to be hosting a show of six of these paintings  on Art Hound’s sister site, Buy Some Damn Art. I absolutely love how these paintings float in and out of focus. At a distance they look totally abstract but closer up you begin to see figures and landscapes.

Paintings by French artist Lou Ros.

“For some people no doubt, my paintings are easy or even weak, because I give up when things get complicated. I see it more as a search. As I often say, “I let the viewer imagine their own end.” And then there’s the lassitude of finishing things… I’m more interested in a search of freedom and strength in an unfinished painting than the perfection of a well-finished canvas…”
