FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE -
Award-winning, Oklahoma artist, Matthew R. Paden announced today that his Spontaneous Realism series “Famous Faces” was chosen to participate in a six-month exhibition at the Carpe Artem Gallery in Oklahoma City, OK.
Paden is a professional, award-winning, American artist who is known for his vivid colors, brash brush strokes, and dynamic texture. His distinctive personal style emanates an expression from chaotic angst to peace and harmony. His larger-than-life pieces dazzle in both private and public displays.
His strong passion for the arts took hold at the tender age of five, and never let go...
Following his soul's unrelenting voice, the artist was honored in 1997 with a first place award in the state of Oregon Congressional Art Competition.
His painting "Victory Touchdown" went on to be displayed in the Nation's Capitol for a year.
Carpe Artem, selected Paden's vivid, abstract portraits via his Instagram page @savvypalette as one of their premier artists to show during their grand opening taking place beginning June, 2020.
The series focuses on iconic portraits from the sixties, seventies, and eighties.
With influences as diverse as Elton John and Clint Eastwood, "Famous Faces," juxtapositions representational art with the fluidity and vulnerability of abstract-expressionism.
As momentary derivatives become frozen through emergent, and various exercise, the viewer is left with a subtle clue to cultures that are fading away...
