Matthew Richardson

Artist, Graphic designer

My work utilises a diverse range of processes including installation, photography, assemblage and digital media and explores how objects and images become significant through recognition or mis-recognition and through changes in context. I investigate alternative histories, world views, myths and half-hidden stories. Anthony Shapland has written 'Matthew's work engages with staging and artifice, the future possibilities of objects and images alongside the potential histories that they carry. The work rests on the edge of possibility. It also deals with nostalgia, but without the melancholic edge, rather it is a re-invention or re-invigoration. The work functions as a graphic depiction of imaginative projection; reality is a malleable and flexible thing.' read full statement
