Mathew McWilliams - Three Quarters.

Mathew McWilliams

Canadian artist Mathew McWilliams (b.1973) lives and works between Paris and Vancouver. His practice investiates various photographic and printing traditions, folding the medium back on itself to produce unique works that read as formal studies and unsettling self-doublings. His work applies a conceptual and minimalist aesthetic to repurposing photography. These unique objects come from a precise sequence of procedures involving gestures and processes that result in exceptionally subtle works that place the viewer between the work’s beginnings and its final state.

Recent exhibitions include Phantasmagoria, Presentation House Gallery Vancouver (2012), Onto Itself, Chalk Horse Gallery, Sydney (2012), As it is Pharmacy, Montasola Italy (2011), Like Minded, Plug-IN ICA, Winnipeg (2011), Photographic Objects, Graanmarkt 13, Antwerp (2011), Whatever Works, db Project, Sydney (2011), 4C Sight Seeing Tour, Saatchi and Saatchi, London (2008).
