Matt Connors' paintings have been praised for their "appealing economy and spontaneity" and their subtle gestures that comment on the act of painting itself.

His work has also recently appeared in group exhibitions at Praz-Delavallade in Paris (2010); Cirrus Gallery, Parker Jones Gallery and Karyn Lovegrove Gallery in Los Angeles; and Sikkema Jenkins in New York.
