Last night was the opening for Artist Victor Matthews exhibition, “Victor Matthews: The Vortex” at the De Buck Gallery. The paintings he showed were a rich swirl of color and textures spiraling inward, becoming one at the center. He didn’t disappoint. Like his work, the opening was rich in the diverse texture and color of it’s guests. Author Salman Rushdie, Russell Simons, Jelly Bean Benetiz, Writer Nelson George, and a list of who’s who’s that could go on an on.
Victor Matthews is showing us he’s not afraid to take it somewhere different. To get caught up and spiral forcefully, yet with control, infinitely inward.
Yo’ Victor, Thanks for inviting me into your “Vortex” bro. I gotta step up my game, cause’ you ain’t fuck’n around. – TMNK
