Matthew Conway is a figurative painter and photographer based in Austin TX.
6"x9" watercolor on cardstock
Matthew has created a series of abstract watercolor paintings inspired by the nude male figure models that he works with. This is number 20 of his series.
The suggestiveness of a non-literal representation is satisfying in a way that realistic images can never be: Matthew Conway — a proficient draughtsman of the human figure — excels here in the precision of ambiguity with this watercolor sketch of daubs and blotches limning recumbent flesh at the moment of disintegration.
