Matthew started working with timber at a young age, enjoying building furniture and exploring architectural shapes. Whilst studying and working as a model maker, he further expanded his interest in design and construction.
English-born Matthew worked in London, Dubai, and Auckland before his move to Christchurch. His artwork has evolved depending on the local materials in each location, utilising regional wood and stone to create contemporary shapes for his sculptures. Learning how to ply bronze and steel has given Matthew a range of mediums with which to mould the strong abstract forms that feature in his work.
