Matthew Feyld’s (b. Saskatoon, Saskatchewan) paintings connote dimensional space with deceptively uncomplicated arrangements of line and colour. His reductive paintings and drawings take everyday forms as their starting points. A discarded envelope, wet bag, or shadow could inspire Feyld’s geometries. Though the canvases appear cold and mathematically precise at first glance, close observers are rewarded with the painterly texture and gesture created by Feyld’s layered process and free-hand line. The interplay between exactitude and expression contributes to the tension present in Feyld’s works, which is aggravated by his dramatic use of positive and negative space.
