Mathew Allen’s paintings form an ongoing inquiry into the materiality of paint upon support and the fundamental aspects of painting itself: colour, medium and process. Physicality of medium and the experience of colour form the kernel of the artist’s reductive approach. The paintings are composed of a ground colour coated in transparent or translucent glazes, producing subtle, atmospheric gradients of tone that highlight the material working of paint whilst generating a colour suffused pictorial space.
