Matthew’s practice looks at how meanings, messages and the stories we tell, shift and mutate over time. He does this by exploring and using the material and symbolic properties of found images and objects, and the technologies that produce them. His process is one of assemblage, of gathering together fragments, and of sifting meaning from the clutter and residue of an ever-accumulating material culture. He looks for hidden, oblique and chance connections, and at how objects and images become significant through recognition or mis-recognition and through changes in context.
