Matthew Metzger studied and practiced law before turning to a career as an artist, designer and furniture maker. In his most recent series of paintings he mixes his own paints using natural materials such as limestone, marble, slate, iron, titanium, clays and minerals combined with oils and egg, transforming them into sensorial, abstract images of light, atmosphere and landscape. This combination of raw and natural materials with the ethereality and atmosphere presents a tension between materiality and illusion. In this series Metzger continues to explore other tensions and opposites that have marked his past work, like movement and stillness, presence and the void, and transience and permanence.
