Matthew Frederick presents an unconventional
and amusing spin on the genre of landscape painting. Inspired by his life amid northern California's scenic countryside, Frederick
looks within the landscape to capture and exaggerate the whimsical shadows and shapes cast from surging hills, majestic oak
trees and gaping valleys. His style is characterized by the careful balance of structure, color, lighting and mood.
His compositions are rendered with a resplendent color
palette of generous applications of paint and undulating brushwork, lending to a compelling emulation of the patterns and
sensations inherent in nature.
