Matthew Weston Taylor is a painter working primarily with oil on panel. His work tends to be modest in scale.  Working with only vague references to source material, his process functions as a search for form and structure.  Shifting between abstraction and representation and looking for non-things to become familiar things.

He received a BFA from San Jose State University in 2008 and an MFA from the University of California Davis in 2011.  He studied painting at the Accademia Di Belle Arti in Florence, Italy from 2004 to 2005.  Matthew teaches at several Universities and Colleges in the South Bay Area.   He lives with his wife and two kids in Soquel, CA.
