Description

Matthew Kassar
Acrylic on Newspaper Collage
50cm x 100cm
 
Matthew Kassar (1968) studied art from an early age at ‘The Malta Society of Arts, Manufacture and Commerce’ and later on, he took art lessons at the 6th Form Msida, under his mentor, Alfred Chircop.  He followed a four year diploma course in painting at ‘The Malta School of Arts’ under Harry Alden, Charles Cassar and Joseph L. Mallia. He took a one year course in Ceramics at ‘Targa Gap’, and he studied under the artist, Roberto Cippolone, where he worked for a month in his studio at ‘La Bottega’ in Florence.He had various solo exhibitions and also took part in many collective exhibitions, both locally and abroad.Matthew in his voyage, interprets his paintings with great sensitivity and sensibility.  His technique produces sculptural illusions.  By choosing the right piece of newspaper cuttings, Matthew manages to intermingle his paintings and collages, to produce certain effects.  And since he uses gesso, varnish, paint and sand, these give texture and like a big jigsaw puzzle, he produces real, acute and clear subjects, some geometrical and some figuratively.  The paintings present the viewer with an illusion of forms and volumes.  Subjects vary from churches, chapels, portals, balconies, still lives, figures, city scapes etc. Matthew’s creative spirit makes one marvel, how from an object that usually gets outdated, he can make use of it to intermingle with history and scenery, and makes it throb with reality.  He produces an actual dreamy atmosphere of serenity, peace, tranquillity and rest.
