About

ARTIST STATEMENT


Mathew Barnes (b. 1973, Kansas City, Missouri)
As I begin to paint the subject, nothing else exists. With each patient brushstroke I become more spiritually and emotionally connected to the story. With my work, I want you to not just see the subject, but become one with them, as if you’ve known them your entire life.
