Matthew Dibble
Cleveland, Ohio

The modern, cubist compositions of Matthew Dibble’s mixed media art can bring you into another world. The work fills your imagination as your eyes follow the interwoven bodies and mythic faces of the convoluted figures. There is a self-conscious and somewhat sad humor to the art. The figures seem trapped, twisted, and uncomfortable, boxed into the dimensions of the work’s surface. Yet, their simplified graphic expressions, and the absurdity of their configurations are whimsical. Their bodies are strong, reminiscent of ancient Greek depictions of heroes in painting and ceramics. Matthew starts by creating small ink drawings, which then inspire his larger pieces on canvas. The work is surreal, with a real sense of modernism, as well as an abstract expressionist style. It may draw your mind to Picasso or de Kooning, however, Matthew’s art is truly unique, fueled by a renewed sense of discovery and its own genre.

Comments About This Piece

This mixed media piece is made with oil, charcoal and newsprint on a gallery wrapped canvas with finished edges. It comes ready to hang. 

Mixed media artwork

Mixed media refers to an artwork that is created using several different types of traditional art media, for example oil paint, ink and collage. The specific media used for each mixed media piece on UGallery is listed in the notes section.

Stretched canvas

Canvas is a heavy-duty fabric used as a painting surface. When a canvas artwork is labeled stretched, it means the canvas has been wrapped around a wooden frame (the ''stretcher''). Stretched canvases typically do not require framing.
