Matt Connors (b. 1973, United States) is a painter known for his refined technique and use of color throughout structured works that seem to occur serendipitously. Referencing art historical traditions of minimalism and abstraction, Connors often works by soaking thin layers of wet acrylic into fixed compositions that capture movement, immediacy, and permeability. Connors received his BFA from Bennington College (Vermont) and MFA from Yale University (Connecticut). He lives and works in Los Angeles and New York City.
