"Hands Across the Sea" - A Young British Artist Reached Out to Help US Fire and Flood Victims
Named by ArtConsultant.com for its featured year-end online exhibition, Matthew Plummer, a classicly trained emerging artist, has already made his mark on two continents.
While paying tribute to the 19th century, to Van Gogh's Starry Night and Monet's Houses of Parliament, Plummer catapults and engages his viewers in a uniquely 21st-century dialogue.
With gesture rivaling the strength of Lucien Freud, while acknowledging the innovation of Anselm Kiefer and respecting the commanding presence of Willem deKooning, Plummer has emerged from the 20th century to address the most profound concern of his generation - our planet.
In Plummer's dialogues between 'nature' and 'civilization' the artist neither voices despair nor preaches any declaration of inevitability, rather, his works evoke perception, imagination, and reason. For those who follow the path he charts, their rewards are plentiful.
