About Matt Enger

Matt Enger has been living on the East Coast since moving to New York City to work for ULAE- Universal Limited Arts Editions. He has been working to create a unique vision of his process since. Matt Enger has been showing in New York since 1990.

“My newest work is somewhat abstract with a focus on depth and color. I like to think of paintings as a way to communicate ideas and emotions without words. I am using a technique I have developed over the years that I call cast acrylic on canvas. The result of this is a high gloss surface that resonates with visual depth.”

“Creating a vibrant body of artwork has continued to evolve over the years because of my love of paint and the contrasting use of colors that I love. I have always had an interest in American Culture, including historical myth and Hollywood has always provided inspiration for my work. In my paintings I am always looking for ways to create new visual depth and line to enhance the psychedelic pallet I favor.”

“My work is a metaphor, which employs historical fact as well as fantasy to explore the daily struggles of people in a crowded, technological, wondrous and many times frustrating society.”
