transformatist art

  1. 1. To change in form, appearance, or structure over time.

  2. 2. A process by which one figure, expression, or function goes through metamorphosis into another that is equivalent in some important respect but is differently expressed or represented.

For centuries there has existed an unoccupied point between painting, dance, music and sculpture, the place between stasis and motion. Steve Matson’s moving works allow us to enter that rarified locale, to be absorbed in the mesmerizing dance of the painted image coming alive, to be immersed in a living environment that challenges the imagination as it moves us through layers of color and form.

Ineffable translucence of abstractions drifting in and out of the frame bring a new category of artistic experience into our world.  A new artistic category, occupying a new artistic point, at once enveloping painting, dance, music and sound.
