My work consists of paintings, drawings and photographs reflective of the many places I've lived,
worked or visited in and around Brooklyn, its historic landscape and as well as the people I've
met, and continue to meet, along the way.
Intaglios, collagraphs, monotypes printed on delicate Japanese papers, collaged over my own artist-
made papers are one aspect of my work; there are also mixed-media collages using colored pencils
over colored inks, and other materials.
My work is a collage of random thoughts and inspiration layered together through a series of
improvisational sessions. Much of the content comes from my everyday life experiences. The end
result is sometimes convoluted, and abstract. I
I shoot overlapping multiple exposure photography, panoramic in shape, with a plastic camera (Holga). These unplanned juxtapositions capture my experience of a particular time and place and at the same time have an identity all their own.
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 artwork documents people, places and everyday events in and around Brooklyn -- street scenes, waterways, gardens, store fronts and interiors. Subjects are immediate and emotionally charged -- childlike but true.
