Dressed in Red
By Matt Sievers
30 x 40 in.
Matthew Sievers was exposed to many different forms of art from a very young age and developed an early passion for artistic expression. Son of the accomplished artist, Gregory Sievers, Matt began studying at his father’s knee. He learned from his father’s experience, passion, creative suggestions and encouragement, which inspired him to develop a truly unique style.
Matt’s recognizable impasto style includes spontaneous brushwork and liberal use of the palette knife, creating playful compositions that celebrate on a colorful canvas. His style reflects light in a particular way, giving him control over light and shadow. This strong and bold application edges his paintings toward three-dimensional sculptural renderings.
Matt has had the opportunity to study the art of different cultures while traveling in many parts of Africa and Europe. He studied art at Brigham Young University and Utah State University where his courses enabled him to experiment with various media and subjects. Despite studying art formally, Matt claims his greatest education has been from his father.
