Mats Andersson Contemporary Art
Copyright © 2011 Mats Andersson Art All rights reserved.
My paintings represent a personal language created through the use of color, texture, composition, and action. By pushing, scraping, dripping, using different tools and materials, and throwing the paint I create a visual history of my own response to these complex elements. It is an active process, intermingling various elements and materials into one final composition. I love to go “over the edge” to explore new possibility’s and expressions, to surprise myself and the viewer.
As I paint I forever seek the balance between negative/positive, light/dark, thin/thick. I use great sweeping gestures against calm breathing spaces. The splatter, gesture, and stroke is sometimes planned and sometimes a result of the intuitive process when I work and the outcome is how it will affect the final result of the painting. I find the harmony of contradictory visual ideas, both beautiful and exciting.
For me the intuitive painting process has become a visual equivalent of meditation. I let the paint act as my medium. The titles have been invented as a part of this process and are also a part of the final result. Mats have gained international attention and have exhibited in New York, Berlin, Amsterdam, Florence, Piza, London, Stockholm, Copenhagen and Norway. Represented by collectors in Sweden, Norway, Germany, Spain, USA and France.
