After graduating from Queensland College of Art in 2001, Matthew exhibited in Brisbane and Melbourne which led to his first European show in Berlin presenting a commissioned series of works created in collaboration with his wife Caroline, an electronic musician. After working and studying for 5 years in Europe, Matthew has returned home to Ipswich, establishing a studio in the outer rural suburb of Karalee.
Since his return Matthew has spent time exploring techniques, making a break from the more considered compositions of his past work, in search of new opportunities that allow for chance. This experimentation became the framework for the Theory of Flaw.
Join us for the Exhibition Launch Event on Saturday 28 July, 3pm.
