Realistic paintings of swimmers by Matt Story

MATT STORY

“I TRY TO PAINT CONTEMPORARY LIFE AS TO CAPTURE CRYSTALS OF PRISTINE MEMORY THAT WE ALL SHARE BUT NEVER DESCRIBE TO ONE ANOTHER.

Each composition uses the gesture of figure or setting to evoke a platonic form, an archetypal notion, a distilled essence, that thing that lasts beyond the moment.”

Story worked as a technical illustrator and graphic artist from his early teens, and studied art in the United States and Western Europe. After graduating from U.C.L.A. he worked extensively throughout North America in film and television production. “The collaboration drove me crazy at some point. Of course, the isolation in the studio can be challenging too, but it suits me far better. In fact, I’m filled with a melancholy at the end of the day and I can hardly wait to rise early and launch into the studio (to the chagrin of my family).”
