From the Pacific to the Atlantic

08 May 2017

Peter Matthews is a British artist who works directly in and with the ocean. His work spans painting, drawing, lens based media, sculpture and performance, and is informed by the applied and natural sciences together with a wide range of eclectic interests gathered through the experiences of travelling and being in the natural world.

The works in this solo show at Strange Cargo gallery span an intense period of time exploring, traveling and being with the Pacific and Atlantic Oceans over the last six months. During these times, the works have been through a myriad range of experiences, from tropical typhoons to beautiful encounters with the natural world, loss, tragedy, passing, enlightenment and divine intervention. Monday the 8th of May to Saturday the 13th of May.
