G-SHOCK Art Sessions Presents Matt Small – Digital Analogue

G-SHOCK are excited to announce the fifth instalment of their G-SHOCK East Art Sessions in collaboration with Urban Nerds Collective on 7th September 2014, featuring the work of painter Matt Small.

London based Matt Small passionately believes in social inclusion – a theme that can be seen throughout his work. Painting directly onto found metal, Small creates works of a strongly urban aesthetic that express his world view that given the opportunity, all individuals have something of value to contribute to society.

Entitled ‘Digital/Analogue’ the East Store installation will feature a wall-mounted ‘gradual pixelated erosion’ of Small’s painted work, contained within a frame constructed in the shape of a smartphone – reflecting the idea that in the digital age an artist’s work is predominantly viewed online within the constraints of 72dpi. Aiming to explore the question of how creatives can combat the ‘dumbing down’ of life and re-engage with their viewers to encourage an appreciation in real life interactions, the installation will also feature a series of hand finished lino cut prints on vinyl records in a further exploration of analogue, tangible formats battling a world of digital formats.

OPEN STUDIOS – EURO ARTS STUDIOS

May 30th, 2014

On friday 6th June, Euroarts will open be making all us artists that reside within its confines to open up our personal realms to the public.
My studio is a migidy mess, in a stididy hardcore style, it makes my head spin everytime i walk in there to try and be creative, but it’s my place and i love having my own domain to focus on my artistic practice.

Its a real insight to see how an artist goes about his/her work, to see their hive of creativity.
So these open studios are a great time to just simply absorb and analyze a variety of human view points

MY POINT OF VIEW

February 21st, 2014

I have a few of my cityscape pieces in a group show at Gallery Different

‘My Point of View’ – An Exhibition of landscapes featuring painting by Paul Bennet, Denis Bowen, Garry Raymond-Pereira, Robin Richmond, Guy Portelli, Matt Small and photography by Julie Chamberlain.

Among all of the subjects that can be the focus for artists, for the viewer, landscapes are probably the most familiar and understood. In reality however landscape painting and drawing is as much a glimpse into the mind of the artist as any other subject. In this exhibition six artists who choose to work with landscape, each with a very different style and approach, give us their point of view.
