Studio 3a Sculpture/mixed media/installation 7 May to 31 August 2005
Contained within Matthew’s work are hyper-organized structures and poetic inventions, pared down to an essential state. Composed of variable units in real space or networks on paper, rules are decided and a system developed from many tiny parts. Much is taken from popular printed material, including magazines, books, advertisements and packaging, where all subsequently carry their own meaning, language, and history. Excised from its original source, a fragment is combined with countless others, creating a scene that is simultaneously an architectonic ideal and a highly subjective construction. A wealth of images and ideas are drawn from architecture and landscape.
