Description Fourteenth in a series of 15 paintings by Matthew Leaper (ML) under a 'Duality of Man' theme inspired by the human contradictions that define our experience. This piece - 'The Market-Maker' - is the right-most image of a triptic dedicated the circular journey of choices that move man and machines. In this image, the choice is service and industry over family and nature.
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.
