Liggett, describes Poetica Erotica as an exhibition that depicts artwork that shows the sexy, yet sophisticated side of eroticism.
"Enchanted," is a vivid, acrylic palette knife piece painted on gallery wrapped canvas and includes an artist signed C.O.A.
"Skin," a abstract, palette knife series is an unapologetic exploration of the female form. I invite the viewer to a sensual world full of color, texture, and expression. The brush is merely a starting point on this creative visual journey to unknown destinations.
With influences from French modernism to more contemporary pinup art; this unorthodox aesthetic blends sensual imagery with a raw, chaotic style of manipulated colors.
"Enchanted," is not meant to be overshadowed by eroticism nor is it obligated to modesty, so it’s not for the timid. By design, my paintings in this series appeal to select collectors: viewers who engage emotionally, and intellectually, seeking inspiration rather than being told what to think.
To explore a genre, we must change it by contributing something new; competence, ideas, and passion alone are not enough...

Last year Matt's piece, "Sensual Chaos" was selected to participate and sold during the one month exhibition taking place at Steve Liggett Studio in Tulsa, OK.
