Matthew Draper is so much master of his medium that he can exploit its direct, physical character to the full, rubbing in and scraping off, layering and blending. Nor does he only draw with conventional, finger-sized sticks of pastel. He also uses blocks or bars big enough to fill the palm of his hand. With them held laterally, he can repeat in colour the broad gestures that he makes with charcoal in his sketches. Thus he keeps the spontaneity and breadth of his original inspiration as he works through the thrilling changes in the interplay of mountain, cloud and moving light on water. The columns of light of these crepuscular rays have a truly tangible presence, too, so much so that, almost as if they were almost solid, they can screen the mountains that lie beyond them as much as they illuminate. They are indeed a mystical architecture in the sky.

Duncan Macmillan, February 2019
