We all agree that modern art provokes all kinds of thoughts and opinions. And the work of Mathew Richie is no exception.
Mathew was born in England in 1964 and received his BFA from Camberwell College of Arts in London in 1986, then moved to New York. His work is characterized by its linearity. He calls it particles of physics and thermodynamics. His installations include paintings, wall drawings, light boxes, performance, sculpture, and projections. His abstract compositions incorporate freehand drawing and layered mark-making, all to create movement that mimic molecules in a continuous flow.
Not everyone understands his work immediately. His installations often combine several forms of art and tend to cover the entire gallery space, floors, walls and ceilings. It can be interpreted as busy. But so are brain waves. It could be interpreted as abstract. And so is the universe.
Worth keeping an eye on.
