Sometimes perimeter and sometimes gateway, the images often dance with found sculptural forms. By surfing through the memories of architecture and places once travelled the results begin to investigate the penumbral spaces that chance can produce.  Unintentionally these compositions might contain a void or emit a positive that would clarify or abstract the situation. Whether abstract or representational the work references how we pass through different spaces and how that experience is recorded. The mixture between ones own past memories and these new images creates an individual narrative in each person’s mind, which again is then filed away for reinterpretation at a later date.

Born in 1986 in Hastings[UK] Matthew went on to study visual communication at Edinburgh College of Art, graduating in 2008. He currently lives and works in Glasgow and helps to run Govan Project Space which he co-founded in 2017
