Statement

Matthew's installations are constructed from founded objects and photographs. He pays particular attention to site specific locations were the spaces it's self becomes a material and part of the palette used. Although he often uses common-place materials, the aim is to allow a different more playful and unconscious world to come to the fore, hopefully penetrating the surface of the ordinary and instead opening up and allowing to emerge, the hidden, complex and poetic that exists within the everyday.
