Something you treasure: My wife’s support, patience and opinion. Your worst habit: Over thinking and over working paintings, and letting my studio become a pit of discarded drawings and coffee cups. The aspect of your work that’s most important to you: There’s no one thing or element that’s particularly important to me as long as I push the work as far as I’m capable. Your first job: I started bussing tables when I was thirteen. Someone whose work you highly recommend: Norman Blamey. See more of Matthew Saba’s work here.
