 Matt McMullen - What I am seeking is looking for me too - 18 Inches x 24 Inches - Oil on Canvas - $800 

In my paintings, I deal with the here and now. Even though life is hectically spiraling onward, I try to capture the moments when you can rest in the present. With the use of figure and landscape I explore what it’s like to drift away from our current reality and get lost in our deeper selves, as the mindless quality of total involvement that comes only when the ego is quiet and there is no attachment.

This is the time when I feel most like my true self, as true happiness and true creativity flow through my body. In these paintings, I depict this flow with the landscape elements that circle around and through my figures. I display how the body is overtaken, as if you are physically fading away and becoming a part of the landscape that surrounds us.

Creating dream like scenes that question reality, I bring the viewer into this special moment in the here and now, inside myself, with hope of transporting them to this magical place.

My work as a visual artist is very much a personal journey, allowing me to visually manifest archetypal imagery, born in the unconscious and accessed through a meditation technique called “Active Imagination.” (Jungian psychology places a heavy emphasis on dream interpretation wherein the contents of one’s unconscious are translated into images, narrative or personified as separate entities.)

Although trained as a traditional photographer, I found that various editing processes allowed me to manipulate images in a more conceptual, painterly direction. As part of my creative evolution, I now find myself experimenting with more mixed media techniques. In my opinion, while the ways and means may vary, in the end, it is all storytelling.

Endlessly influenced by The Great Masters as well as Victorian literature and art. The writing of Tennyson, Yeats and Wilde along with the Romantic Poets, Shelley, Keats, and Blake, provide a wellspring of inspiration and awe. Dante Gabriel Rossetti, John William Waterhouse and the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood helped shape my artistic vision. Photographic voices include avant-garde photographer Man Ray, the great innovator Edward Weston and the diverse Paul Strand. Most recently and profoundly influenced by the writings of Carl Gustav Jung and Joseph Campbell.

I believe that the most important work is created from experiences in a communal environment and the connections made within, both the beautifully positive ones and the less idealized ones that can manifest themselves. With dear appreciation portraiture, I aim to give validity to these nuanced connections through fragmentation, collage, and meditative rendering.

These more fragmented and detached views of portraiture are a product of a more pragmatic view on human relationships rather than ones of immediate recognition and connection with the viewer. To the artists, these figures shown are immensely personal and significant, but the viewer loses this connection. Instead, the viewer is prompted to consider and digest the image in a more quizzical way as they process the lapse in information.

Through this frame of mind, I retain a connection to the portraiture, to the person, but create a theme of detachment as opposed to completely capturing them via photography or film; the concealment becomes more representative than their features.

Digital Painting


I am an artist that developed my style and expression from non-traditional mediums. I currently reside in Las Vegas, Nevada and use four (4) primary techniques in my digital artwork: painting, airbrushing, vector base Illustration, and photo-manipulation.

I am drawn to nostalgia, femininity, movement, and vibrations and I incorporate those elements into my artwork. My goal is to create art that is striking and beautiful and leaves the audience to question the world in which we live with an homage to Illustration, Pop Art, Street Art and a touch of Abstract Art.

Under Cypress Shadow

Oil on Canvas


Ellie Nazari was born and grew up in Iran and started painting at mid thirties. She migrate to the U.S. CA at 2007 and moved to Danbury CT at 2013 where she received her MFA from WCSU and has shown her works in several galleries of NYC and CT.

Growing up in Iran, she has always felt the unbearable heaviness of being a woman in a traditional male dominated society and this feeling became a theme for series of paintings. This portrait is more minimal in detail in order to exaggerate the emotional impact of form and color which are reflections of her interior self.

As one can see even though the female portrait is under the cypress three, which can be a metaphor for male character, but she is the main subject with stronger forms and more colorful pallet.
