Matt Higgins
A Ways Away, Contemporary Abstract Landscape Painting

2024

About the Item

This painting uses cool earth colors and a combination of oil and wax to create a landscape focusing on brushwork, color and form. Like many of the artists paintings the landscape comes in and out of focus to some degree. In the case of this painting, horizontal, diagonal and mountainous forms create the majority of the composition while not becoming too literal. The many layers of paint and process are evident upon closer inspection and the oil paint combined with cold wax creates subtle transparencies and washes of color. Matt Higgins b. 1987 is an artist and art professor who lives and works in Philadelphia, Pa. He maintains a regular studio practice in the Fishtown neighborhood focusing on painting in a variety of styles and bodies of work. His work is included in numerous private collections and has been included in a wide range of interior design projects including residential properties, corporations, and hotels.

  • Interference, Contemporary Abstract Oil Painting
    Located in Philadelphia, PA
    In this piece, the intense use of negative space highlights each individual marks character, weight and texture. The painting explores various types of mark making and paint application inspired by elements of the landscape painted in various thicknesses, intensities and with a variety of different tools. Each mark is calculated and responsive to the one that came before it, creating a cause and effect relationship across the surface of the canvas. Restraint is a key element of this new body of work from artist Matt Higgins and the option to go further is always there. However, the excitement and spontaneity of the piece would therefore be sacrificed. Done in one session of intense meditative focus, A Place We Can See depends upon the exact moment of creation...
