Abstraction Expressionist Artists We Love: Matthew Dibble

on April 03, 2023

I'm captivated by Cleveland artist Matthew Dibble's unique artistic approach. With a background in construction (as a roofer for 30+ years), he brings a craftsman's precision to his work, approaching each piece with meticulous attention. Dibble's abstract compositions of gestural movements are a mesmerizing choreography of creativity.

'Mechanics Lien' by Matthew Dibble.

Graduating from Cleveland's Cooper School of the Arts in 1978, Dibble has carved his own path, free from the constraints of traditional artistic norms. His body of work is a testament to original and nuanced responses to both modern and postmodern sensibilities, all without unnecessary artistic or philosophical pretensions.

'Temerate Murmur Painting' by Matthew Dibble.

While Dibble paints both figurative and abstract, it’s his Abstract Expressionist paintings that I’m most drawn to, and I see influence from Willem DeKooning and Arshile Gorky. His paintings seem to beckon me into a visceral dialogue that transcends the ordinary.
