Matthew Dibble - Parking Lot (2011)

Parking Lot (2011)
Mixed technique - 60

Here is another favorite piece from Matthew Dibble's abstract painting series Middle is Everywhere, this one entitled Parking Lot.  Dibble's technique so expertly evokes a sense of space and depth, borrowing bits of technique and insight of those who preceded him, yet completely takes the medium to a whole different level.   As I study the paintings from this collection, I allow myself to become drawn into the whole, still fully aware of the intricate detail that Dibble has presented which provides this passage.

As the artist himself says:
My wish is to live in the real world. I have a natural curiosity about my place on earth and a thirst for sincerity in all forms. These paintings are a glimpse into what happens when this very active inner life and the outer world come in contact. 

I tried to work on these new paintings with “feeling” in my whole body. I’m not quite as interested in brushing the paint on, but pushing the paint around.
