Artist Statement: Matt Coombs

"My paintings examine the relationships between the construction of civilizations and individuality. The work is representational, but contrary to classical painters who dealt with concrete symbols reflecting tradition, my paintings are meant to access the associative memory of the individual. No object has direct meaning, which creates a piece that is more than the sum of its parts." - Coombs

Featured work: Untitled. Oil on Canvas. 36 x 48 in. 2008.
