Matt Beasant painting practice is dedicated to abstract explorations of the landscape. Growing up in rural Northwestern Ontario, Beasant spent a lot of time alone in the natural landscape around him. The lines and undulating forms rendered in his works convey his emotional reflections on the lakes and forests around his home where he could freely form his own perspective on spirituality, and personal expression.
Matt Beasant’s works have been included in several exhibitions across Ontario including a solo exhibition at Coldstream Fine Art, Toronto (2019) and group presentations at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, Kleinburg, ON (2016,2017); The Artist Project Contemporary Art Fair, Toronto (2016-2018); and the Toronto Outdoor Art Exhibition (2013-2018) among others. His work is held in private and public collections including The Bailey Collection, and The Archives of Ontario.
