Matthew P. Klos
The places portrayed in my paintings are silent studio settings and scenes inside my home. I am inspired to make these paintings by the light acting on everyday objects and the geometric relationships that are found in the contemporary interior. These kitchen paintings offer an intimate view of domestic life. While I am working in front of these simple scenes my thoughts drift from family, to spirituality, politics, friendships, fears, etc. The making of these pictures helps me sort things out and find an anchor in the beauty of my surroundings and the simple physicality of objects. All of that and I never miss a meal.
