MARIBEL MATTHEWS

Spring Awakenings
April 28 – May 18, 2018
Reception: Thursday, May 3, 2018 6-8 PM

Maribel Matthews’ illustrious oeuvre harmoniously captures the joy within the world that surrounds her. Working in predominantly oil on canvas, Matthews’ paintings capture a variety of themes, including but not limited to idyllic landscape scenes, still lifes, portraiture, as well as abstract canvases. The artist’s palette mirrors her Mediterranean background as bright, bold jewel tones adorn her compositions, inviting the viewer into her jubilant and festive domain. Crisp lines and thick, nearly impressionistic brushstrokes characterize the majority of Matthews’ more naturalistic paintings, while her abstract works, unencumbered by the boundaries of line and shape, emanate a similar, joyful exuberance.

In works such as
Orchids, a vase full of the violet flowers rests upon a deep plum background. The orchids are composed of crisp lines, organic shapes and contrasted by their radiant, chartreuse leaves. They playfully present themselves to the viewer, some with agape, blossoming leaves, some bashfully hiding behind their counterparts. Bulbous, ripened peaches litter the foreground of the composition, enfolding among the flowers in a congenial promenade.

The artist currently resides in Gibraltar.
