Matthew was born into a multi-racial (Spanish/Yugoslavian/Filipino/Dutch), bi-religious (Catholic/Protestant) household. From childhood he has always lived an international life. Sampling from this life, he has been able to pick through a palette of cultures, stereotypes, prejudices, and rituals to produce art that connotes the marriage of novelty and tradition. He fondly calles this process as Directional Nostalgia. Using a variety of techniques from size distortion to visual clarity Matthew adds a third element of sculpture in the form of stacked and/or carved canvases. These intentionally positioned layers lead the viewer through a menu of images slowly guiding their vista from the familiar to the foreign with the intent to illicit a memory or subliminal reaction. Ever living the nomadic life, Matthew lives in a location for only a few years. Currently he resides in Washington, DC awaiting his next home and new venture.
