Matthew: My practice

From years of making images as a cinematographer, for Matthew painting has re-invigorated the creative process beyond the strictures of the camera...

"I have looked through lenses all my life and have observed and learned about light. I am not particularly poetic about my work, but I seek the pure joy of the landscape, the form and how it is effected by light, it makes me feel happy.

By returning again and again to the same piece of landscape, observing the light and the emotions it brings to the fore it makes for the centrepiece of each painting. Increasingly the sky and clouds and seasonal changes are there in my paintings.

My paintings are a transformation of the memories and observations into a new thing, a painting with a life and joy of its own."
