Exhibition

A World Suspended

Exhibiting Artists: Matthew Ivey

Venue: Utterly Art 20B Mosque Street > venue details

Dates: 21 Feb 2013 - 10 Mar 2013

A world suspended: silent, frozen and forgotten. Lone figures and structures appear to be eternally contained within landscapes that fall between the real and imagined, creating moments of contemplation, stillness and solitude. Matthew Ivey's work explores themes of the sublime and of emotional isolation to express our temporary existence within the overwhelming vastness of nature. Inspiration for Matthew’s work comes from the scenes and landscapes he encounters when travelling.

Much of Matthew’s work is produced using the reduction linocut printmaking technique. Each layer is carved on a single block until the block has been almost completely reduced to nothing. This process allows the construction of many subtle layers that create a sense of depth and space.
