Matthew Rucker

Matthew Rucker has been painting professionally for over 20 years, his work has been displayed in galleries and museums from coast to coast and his work can be found in collections worldwide. He refers to his painting style as subtle surrealism.


I paint as a way to learn about myself; particularly, the things that I hide from my conscious self. Through this process, I capture what is most familiar to me: duality, contradiction and ambivalence.

My life is a ride on a pendulum, swinging between polar opposites. I simultaneously stand on two opposing sides, struggling together at the same moment. It is this moment of black and white, pleasure and pain, human and nature, that I know best and that I paint most.
