Acrylic on Canvas
62 63/64” x 31.5”
For Argentinean artist Sebastian Cristian Mattheus, the resonation of visceral colors echo throughout the canvas, transcending boundaries, fusing a dazzling cultural aesthetic rich in tradition and history which contributes to the emotional power of the compositions. Inviting us on a visual odyssey which celebrates cultural iconography, this gifted artist presents a unique gestural aesthetic that demonstrates his subjective interpretation of experience.
Employing an expressionist kaleidoscopic palette, Sebastian Cristian Mattheus speaks in a visual language of color that evokes a powerful tension which creates an impassioned aesthetic environment. A complex emotional dialogue results in the resounding chorus of saturated brilliant hues of cherry reds, ripened greens, and sun-kissed yellows that relay the cultural influences of his home country, Argentina. Intermingling the intersection between the past and contemporary world, Mr. Mattheus’s oeuvre includes artworks that tell the story of a geometric world inspired by the primitiveness of soft and curving lines. Sharply structured elements contrast through brilliant comparisons as the emotional hand of the artist sweeps across the canvas. Composition comes second only to the masterfully vibrant hues; particularly noted is the dominance of a red so seductive that it bleeds throughout the painting. Inspired by Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, whose influences are deeply observed, Mattheus explores self-identity, nationhood, and history through his multifaceted colored artworks.

Contemporary painter Jack Jasper creates chromatic paintings that fill the canvas with thick layers of paint as he visually stir emotions through sensational perception. Utilizing a rigorous color palette comprised of deep, saturated hues, Mr. Jasper juxtaposes pure fields of voluminous color with semi-figurative organic shapes that abstractly float amidst the voracious backdrop of his abstract dreamscapes.
Jack Jasper is interested in expressing the natural contradictions that arise during creation, the epic journey undertaken between a body’s origin and its introduction into the universe’s total system. The artist states, “From the experience of being surrounded by the powerful presence of nature in Montana and my medical studies, I’m drawn to experimenting with combinations of elements, sometimes alluding to air, earth, fire and water. I try to represent nature’s electron dance, unfolding as a shimmering becoming—a synchronicity between disparate elements.” In his opulent paintings Mr. Jasper shows that cosmic creations are a moment of complete upheaval because disparate elements combining lack the intervention of human rationalism, a moment when the uncontrolled energies of the universe violently juxtapose. Mr. Jasper’s oversized canvases express the moment of Absolute Creation, when the dynamism of oppositions blend to create new and improved beings. Once absolute creation channels these energies into their bodily forms, chaos becomes controlled. Mr. Jasper expresses the dialectical tension of creation through his dazzling pastel color palette and dynamic brushstrokes, ranging from fluid organic lines, confetti speckles and hard-edged bursts of color all harmoniously combine in single compositions.
