Matthew Weatherstone’s oil paintings and charcoal works in his series “The Disconnect” elegantly illustrate his theme with soft color palettes and smooth images. His work “explores ideas of human disconnectedness to the natural environment, genuine human community and relationship, faith and death.”
The Sydney-based artist captures these feelings well with the contrast of industrial buildings and nature. Many of his works also feature beautiful skyscapes, with lots of warm inviting colors. The pieces make it seem as if nature being incorporated into our world is more of a distant memory than the present.
