Matthew Richardson makes, crafts, collages and assembles in both physical and digital media, using paper, cloth, clay and found images and objects. His work explores how meanings,  messages and stories shift, mutate and fragment through the processes and passing of time - what survives, what disappears, and what leaves a trace. These aspects are brought into play by looking at the material, symbolic and historic aspects of images, objects and materials, and how they interconnect. Oblique and chance connections are found and built upon, allowing fragments to evolve into their own particular forms, hovering between the magical and mundane.

Matthew lives and works in Norwich, UK. His work has been shown in gallery and museum spaces including Tactile Bosch, g39, Oriel Davies, Transition, Outpost and Kingston Museum. He has worked across various forms and media, including bookworks installation and moving image. He has worked extensively as an ilustrator in design and publishing, and commissions have included projects with the V&A, the British Library and the Poetry Society and he is represented for his illustration work by HeartCV
