Rebecca Matson, Artist Statement


There is a sensation of ambiguity embedded into the work through the construction of cold,
solitary space with commonplace and easily disregarded subject matter. Much of my subjects are devoid of tangible metaphors- they resist direct interpretation of circumstances and instead function from the undercurrent of loneliness and isolation. Overall, the paintings
are expressing and eliciting emotions of vacancy, isolation, and pointlessness through
imagery that is very familiar but devoid of direct metaphors and interpretation.
