2016, oil, oil enamel, glitter, pigment on linen, 60”x72”
"My paintings feed off of the history of abstraction, physics, traditional eastern imagery, Chinese landscape motifs, digital imaging, and other sources. There is a constant flux between atmospheric and graphic, abstract and figurative, quiet and chaotic forces"

Herbs, 2015, Fiberglass reinforced concrete, .55.1 x 55.1x 47.3 inches.
"I work on these two bodies of work simultaneously. I consider that even though they are apparently different and opposite from one another they complement each other perfectly. One is clearly rooted in the past and the other in the future, characteristics which define the forces that drive my work."

Young Lucian, 2015, Oil on canvas, 196x170 cm.
"The work of Matan Ben Tolila focuses on large-scale landscape paintings. His paintings linger on moments in which reality and abstraction co-exist. The scenery appearing in Ben-Tolilas paintings contains temporary structures of different kind and function, these are constructed with simple, almost schematic elements."

The Colors I Am Inside, 2016, mixed media on canvas, 36x48"
"One of the most arresting visuals for me is an old wall layered with papers, graffiti, and text- our modern hieroglyphics. I try to re-create this beauty in my work, the layers of time and decay are what interest me. I hope that the person viewing my work will linger, trying to discover hidden imagery and text and depending on their life experience, find their own meaning or interpretation."
"Fall Water" 24X30
“With each day that passes, I realize more and more that art is woven into the fiber of my being. Light elates me, color anchors me and creating completes me. In scripture it says, “Your eyes are the windows to your soul.” I take great joy in seeing creation, finding the beautiful in the simple, studying the form of an object and noticing how colors, shapes and light interact with each other to form art all around us and then translating that onto canvas.”
