I accumulate discarded objects and nontraditional materials, transforming them through painstaking methods into sculptures and installations. Both material and process are significant to the content of my work.
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 new work has been a great deal of focus on human beings connection to living and nonliving things in our universe. The captured series examines how a technology is used to create identity and mind control.
In the simplest terms, I am a mark-maker. This making of marks, lines, scratches, letters and strokes is central to my work and leads, only incidentally, to an area that is about light, tone and texture.
