About Matthew J. Frock

About the artwork

Crystal Cave is a painting by Matthew J. Frock in artist-made acrylic paint. The painting is on a thin layer of porcelain which coats a wooden substrate. Frock says: "The paint I mix creates unique textures and finishes. The colors are exceptionally bright and vivid. I mix paint to be thin like watercolor or thicker and dense with pigment like gouache. The result is a painting with extraordinary depth, super luminous color, and a variety of brush work and mark making. The color in my paintings is saturated the way a brightly colored flower pedal pulsates with richness. "Some paintings are manifested from visual memory where as others are constructed from mental images formed during the painting process in response to stimulus in the studio such as music and audio recordings. I was listening to Mary Stewart's "The Crystal Cave" on audio while working. The image evolved over the course of production and finally came to resemble the description of the cave from the book."
