Matthew C. Wilson is an artist working in a variety of media including installation, sculpture, video,
and site specific action; his work distills constellations extracted from entwined natural, historical,
cultural, and economic process.
My painting style is realistic in essence. I paint this way because I love the world as it appears with its infinite shapes, color and substance. My paintings are representations of both esthetic and spiritual experiences.
Formally, my work is a study in abstract, complex, organic forms based on my childhood nightmares. I work predominantly with materials found in the waste stream like plastic bottles, junk mail & excess packaging.
Mine is A Multidisciplinary practice using ceramics, drawing, video, sound, performance and
installation to create new mythology that explores ideas of multiple consciousness as it pertains to
the social constructs of race sex and class.
