Matthew’s artistic apprenticeship has been an eclectic if not a modernist one. A Melbourne-based painter, Matthew’s diverse travel and cultural experiences are distilled through the archetypal filter of oil and pigment. The underlying compositional structures of his paintings are repetitive - grids, geometric patterns, stripes or sequential arrangements drawn from nature.
Matthew has exhibited in Europe and widely in Australia, and in 2008 he completed a three-month Australia Council Residency in Barcelona, Spain. As well as having his work held in numerous private and corporate collections, Matthew is continually developing architectural installations throughout Australia.
