now that i’m on “spring break” and have a minute to breathe… i am getting around to posting a few pics taken bychristy (thank you). btw, who’s the lady looking at my artwork? đŸ˜‰
here’s a few more.

i’d love to hear your thoughts. of course, please let me know if you have any interest in buying any (ha ha) or getting a print? i am exploring fashion, pattern, portraiture and narrative in these paintings. here is my most recent artist statement. i despise writing these and think they are generally a bit ovah the top and BS and trying to confuse you so you don’t understand the art, so sorry if i do that! my fave artist statement i ever saw was by someone who took on a big foot persona.

“Mati McDonough paints improbable narratives teetering between beauty and awkwardness. Her vocabulary of symbols, influenced by textile design and fables, depict escapism and nostalgia. Her paintings are built up through rich layers of tertiary color and unexpected moments of improvised pattern and detail. McDonough tells unrestricted stories that are simultaneously intimate and universal.”
