Matt O'Neill relocated to Denver from Chicago in the 1980's in order to become a ski-bum. Naturalistic realism has defined his style for most of the time since, whether portraits of his neighbors in the Five Points area of Denver or of spotty teenagers taken from yearbook photos, O’Neill’s subjects often derive from cultural nostalgia combined with surrealism and humor. In many of his paintings O'Neill takes a uniquely western subject and renders it through the prism of Picasso’s simultaneous reverence and bizarrely mocking abstraction.
