Matthew Bates
Matthew Bates is the October 2004 Artist of the Month. Matthew was born in Washington, D.C. in 1970. He attended the Academy of Art College in San Francisco, and moved to Firenze in 1992. He creates images which stretch reality with three perspective points. This technique, “Magic Realism,” allows us to see a realistic image in a magical context. It is as if we had three sets of eyes spying on the world all at once.

Matthew's technique has been molded by mathematical principals as well. In several of his paintings he has used Fibonacci Rectangles, or the Golden Ratio, to create the design of the painting. He has had exhibitions in Washington D.C., Firenze, Spain, New York City and Virginia.
