Consider the transference of emotional content through exploration of facial expressions. The symbiotic knowledge that comes from a conversation with our inner voice. These emotive faces capture gestural information emitted from layers of sheer glazes and gestural marks, seeking human connection, empathy and understanding. My interest in existential portraiture started as a pursuit to find the similarities that define humankind; beyond culture, language, gender, and religion.I am fascinated by the complexities of human experiences and the primal connections that unite humanity. As a figurative artist, I look to create experiences with my artwork. I often paint faces that mirror human emotions. These expressive portraits, still and time-based, explore meaning and understanding in consideration of the lack thereof.

Matushevitz's artwork engages the viewer in a universal conversation that explores the commonality of uncertainty within the mania and calm surrounding daily life. The images are messy, murky layers of entangled marks creating a dense surface that mimics the human condition.
