Matthew Enger

Matthew Enger

Born: 1963

Hometown: New York City

Based in: Newark NJ

Matt Enger has been living on the East Coast since moving to New York City to work for ULAE- Universal Limited Arts Editions in 1988. He has been continuing to work on his unique vision through his process ever since. Matt Enger has been showing in New York since 1990.

“My newest work is somewhat abstract with a focus on depth and color. I like to think of paintings as a way to communicate ideas and emotions without words. I am using a technique I have developed over the years that I call cast acrylic on canvas. The result of this is a high gloss surface that resonates with visual depth.”

“Creating a vibrant body of artwork has continued to evolve over the years because of my love of paint and the contrasting use of colors . I have always had an interest in American Culture, including historical myth including Hollywood and that has always provided inspiration for my work. In my paintings I am always looking for ways to create new visual depth and line to enhance the color pallet I favor.”

“My work is a metaphor, which employs historical fact as well as fantasy to explore the daily struggles of people in a crowded, technological, wondrous and many times frustrating society. Painting is like holding life in your hand and watching it drip through your fingers”
