​A Metropolis is iconic. Is it the culture of the city or the monuments that define it? Or, are both working together to influence the ideals and lifestyles of the people who experience them?
Matthew Frederick, Katja Leibenath, Lucky Rapp, and Ken Sloan explore this theme in their new work. This collection of paintings play with everyday urban scenes, beloved icons and words. Ultimately, reminding us to savor our cities and look again at what we might take for granted in a new light.

“Matthew Frederick's paintings, with their textural elegance and rich interplay of color, bring a life of their own to the spaces in which they are placed. I find his work as evocative as it is intriguing.”  - Jacques Saint Dizier :: Architectural Digest 100 Designer “Vibrant rollercoaster broad brush impasto landscapes and still lifes with agile backdrop flourishes.” - Alan Bamberger :: from review on
