Matthew B

Matthew often creates abstract collages. In some, jagged shards of card are assembled like static explosions on paper. In others, pieces are assembled solidly to form thicket-like structures. Matthew also produces paintings in which viscous, diaphanous paint is applied energetically, combining circles and curves and waves to create organic compositions. Matthew loves coming to artbox, often treating others in the studio to his singing and upbeat nature. He notes,” I have many friends in Artbox and it makes me feel good. It is a very inclusive environment of volunteers and artists. I am the only wheelchair (user) but I don’t see myself different as I am with other disabled people. We are all together.”
