Matthew Leaper, Westfield, NJ Member Since December 2009 Artist Statement I utilize art as means to express concepts that words cannot fully define. Each piece is created within a "contemporary comic" form of popular art that is inspired by a combination of Andy Warhol and the Marvel Universe with the reflective beauty of stained glass windows.
Please contact me at ML[at]matthewleaper.com for commissioned works. I utilize a lot of metallic and translucent paints in original images, the dynamic beauty of which, by design, does not always translate in jpeg.
