The exhibition will include larger-scale works by Matthew Burrows, the fruition of his development of his In and Through series which he developed during the COVID pandemic.
These paintings reflect Burrows’ interest in connection “to ourselves, one another, and our environment… and the conditions in which we all might thrive”.
The titles of the exhibited works echo Burrows’ preoccupation with the experience of landscape: Lineament, Sternō, Shataph, and Gatescape. Collectively, they suggest a mapping of nature, an attempt to understand an implicit relationship, a relationship of interdependence.
Burrows uses natural fibres to produce his pieces with paintings on jute and burlap. The motifs are from drawings of the landscape around his studio and they combine the natural world with the human interventions of the environment, such as electrical pylons and fences.
Burrows lives and works in the East Sussex countryside, where he also directs the Artist Support Pledge movement, which led to him being awarded an MBE for services to Arts and Culture.
In association with Vigo Gallery.
