Matthew Moskowitz was born on Long Island, New York, 1976, and is known for his compelling paintings that employ an all-over technique of Abstract Expressionism. An emotional quality of color, spread out across the surface of the canvases, is evident in Moskowitz's evocative abstract art. Using vibrant colors, his large expressionistic paintings, as seen in the work, Summer Thoughts, that measures six feet by ten feet, capture and reveal his observations and memories of living in the West Indies on the island of Saint Lucia in 2001. His paintings of lush and elusive images challenge one's ability to interpret visual language.
Matthew Moskowitz received his B.A. from University of South Florida, 1998, and his M.A. from Hofstra University, New York. He resides in Oyster Bay, New York, his studio is steps away from the Oyster Bay harbor that continually serves as an inspiration to his work.
"While the paint is still wet on my canvases the paintings take on a life of their own. They are living breathing things that often tap into my subconscious. They know how they want to look and they use me as their medium." --Matthew Moskowitz
