Inspired by the 1903 book "Sundial Mottoes," artist Matson Ambroise illustrates a man with a long, white beard and weathered features. Applying thick gestural layers, they create dynamic textures that reveal portions of the lighter background. The lower right side of the composition features a faint pencil inscription that reads, "Look Upon Me. Though Silent, I Speak. For the Happy and the Sad, I Mark the House Alike. I Warn as I Move. I Steal Upon You. I Wait for None." The painting comes with an unlacquered brass frame.

Matson Ambroise

Manhattan beach , California

Husband and wife artists Amber Flora and Matt Reid paint contemporary portraits characterized by a combination of distinct palette knife work and detailed figurative elements. After a decade of on-and-off collaborations, they created a series of paintings that surpassed their expectations. This propelled them into a professional partnership, where they united their creative talents under the moniker Matson Ambroise. "It is the culmination of two lives lived together in the pursuit of pure creativity," says Amber. Matt's art passion ignited early on, inspired by his artist mom and uncle, and Amber Flora completed her BA in Art History at California State University, Long Beach. Today, their studio is a spacious, brightly lit space overlooking miles of California's high desert. While they work, the background hums with 60s samba music as their pit bull, Marlin, keeps them company. When they're not in the studio, they enjoy adventures with their three young children and spend half the year at Manhattan Beach, their shared hometown. Additionally, Matt is a musician who tours with his rock band NORMANS, and Amber is a devoted long-distance runner.
