O EMBRYO

Brian P Matheny

http://brianpmatheny.tumblr.comA foundation ill-defined, malformed and hampered until that time existence commences.  The paintings explore a self-imposed ambiguity, angst without glamour, doubting barrenness, historical and symbolic endeavors to identify man’s ineptitude. A culture’s final ruse. The paintings grimace with dissonance and a foreboding distinctiveness. Deprived faculties to emotional recourse become characterized by a genuineness, one obscured by modern/now/consumption/fame/fragmented/no more questions/…a life of nauseating, replicating, and anticipating successions of lifeless, unfilled values used in contradiction, a self-inflicted addiction. Pinning uncertainty/obscenities/ugliness personified with mock-fashionable societal agendas. They are an imitation of a “self” crumbling hopelessly in redemption. To quote Friedrich Nietzsche, “The surest way to corrupt a youth is to instruct him to hold in higher esteem those who think alike than those who think differently.”
