LA JOLLA, Calif. - Nov. 30, 2017 - PRLog -- Much as Picasso was influenced by African art, Delacroix and Cezanne, and he himself became an indisputable influence upon Roy Lichtenstein and Claes Oldenburg, they, in turn, significantly impacted the work of Jeff Koons and Takashi Murakami. Long before ancient Rome was inspired by Athens, fine art has built upon its own history. By understanding and incorporating the past frequently are artists able to create their own uniquely contemporary vocabularies. Just as his classical training has become a hallmark of the works of Matthew Plummer, so has he impressed his own unmistakable signature character upon his paintings.

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.
