Ebba Matz Statment My artistry is founded in the pursuit of what happens when you close the door to the outer world and start to look for the different things you normally can’t see. My paintings should be seen as snapshots from peoples personal lives, moments from the reality we usually hide deep down under our wellpolished surface.In one of my most recent series of paintings, I have chosen to portrait the feet of my friends. The reason behind the paintings is my opinion that body parts that’s not normally displayed creates an openness for the viewer, and by that a more honest image of the depicted person – without the preconceived thoughts we usually get from reading a persons face. We are so used to always see faces, both IRL and in social media – to read faces, meet people, see selfies and other forms of self-portraits. As an artist, to always be exposed to faces in various ways, this can enhance the difficulty of truly portrait a face and all the emotions that it conveys. As a result of this, it becomes harder to get a true perception of the individual behind the face. A pair of feet on the other hand is as unique as a face, but because they are rarely depicted you will get another kind of freedom as an artist to explore them closer and understand who the person behind them really are.
