Matthew Sproul

"I illustrate buildings with figures in pencil, marker and collage. When completed I photograph and print the drawings.  The reason for doing so is that my medium is non-permanent Crayola markers.  I use them because they are simple, atypical and buoyantly colored.

I’ve been depicting architecture since 2010. “It is nothing less than life itself taking form,” Frank Lloyd Wright.  

My early pictures have three dimensions, the new ones have two.   I chose the latter method for its expressive quality, as well as to highlight and celebrate this aspect of drawing, painting and collage.

In all of the pieces here the fields are essentially abstract.  They are bands of color chosen mostly to be complementary, though in places they do suggest landscape features and in that sense are open to interpretation by the viewer." — Matthew Sproul, January 10, 2018
