This is Matthew's Lockdown show! Many of these delicate and exquisite works show his own home. Through the windows and beyond the open doors summer is going through the motions. Inside is all shadows and waiting! Tools and toys lie around randomly, or are perhaps artfully placed…and there are people looking out of the windows, caught and unable to completely flee the scene.
As always, the light on the floors and tabletops is perfect and fascinating. You can almost see the dust motes in the air, smell the dust in those old curtains. Hear a lawn mower in the distance. Peace and persistence!
Matthew Wood was born in 1973, and trained at Middlesex, Birmingham and The School of Art, University of Wales. He lives with his wife and two children near Welshpool.
