Matthew Quick (born 1967 in Adelaide) is an Australian artist. He was a finalist for the Doug Moran Prize in 2013 and the Archibald, Wynn & Sulman Prizes, the latter administered by the Art Gallery of NSW, in 2012 and 2014.
Quick's works usually consist of thematically and stylistically linked series. The series Introduced Species from 2011 inspired composer Katy Abbott's symphonic piece of the same name, and was performed by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in 2014, and he has collaborated with her on three of her CD covers. His painting Remedial Measures was purchased by Coffs Harbour Regional Gallery in New South Wales for its permanent collection after winning the Sponsor's Prize in 2013 Eutick Memorial Still Life Awards.
He has painted portraits of several prominent Australians, including actresses Sigrid Thornton and Cassandra Magrath, comedians Wil Anderson and Hamish Blake, and convicted lawyer Andrew Fraser.
Based in Melbourne, he has had over 14 solo exhibitions. His work has been included in more than 70 group shows.
He is represented by Nanda/Hobbs Contemporary in Sydney, Hill Smith Gallery in Adelaide, Metro Gallery in Melbourne and others in London and Singapore. His work is in the collections of Perc Tucker Regional Gallery, Aitken Hill Estate, and private collections throughout the world.
