Politically Provocative Paintings by Matthew Quick

Politically Provocative Paintings by Matthew Quick

The prolific Australian artist Matthew Quick makes art to make a point. In this series of work the painter dresses up iconic statuary in politically provocative attire. 

In Quick’s imagery the treasured statues have fallen victim to the clutter, both physical and idealogical, of the 21st century.  One painting features George Washington with surveillance cameras attached all over him as if the monument is now just an enabler to Big Brother. Another image shows a warrior statue who’s cloak has been patterned with the modern military ‘camo’ pattern which has infiltrated popular culture. 

Matthew Quick’s work is well crafted and conceptually progressive by use of sarcasm making it increasingly popular around the world and web.
