Striking in both colour and composition, Milo Matthieu’s works are collages built with layers of paint and paper. Originally having studied photography, his experimentations with building upon pre-existing images with paint opened up new realms of possibility for the artist; aside from the process allowing his works to grow organically in ways Matthieu himself may not have expected, the use of readymade imagery allows him to pay homage to artists who have come before. The results are works that, despite being built upon canvas and wood, often seem textural and three-dimensional, especially when viewed from oblique angles. These are works that seem to come alive as the viewer moves around them, bringing to the fore a sense of vitality and energy. This does, however, belie the subject matter that Matthieu often portrays. Despite the liberal use of pepper-reds and sunset-yellows, these are not ‘happy’ images. There is often a dark undertone to the works, owing largely to the eldritch nature of the figures the artist creates. Faces, built from Frankensteinian constructs of odd-numbered eyes and lipless mouths, peer out of the darkness like macabre visions. They are not works which start out with a ‘message’; instead, the metamorphosis that gradually takes place from the initial markings of the work to the end product create some form of significance. Matthieu leaves the meaning behind the works in his artistic oeuvre intentionally ambiguous, instead using them as blank canvases upon which the viewer is invited to apply their own ideas.

MILO MATTHIEU (b. 1990, Los Angeles, USA) lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. After graduating university with a degree in photography, he has exhibited his works nationally and internationally. Recent exhibitions include: ‘Rum Room New York, Dean Collection’, Dream Midtown, New York (2018); ‘Kinfolk 10th Anniversary’, Kinfolk 90, New York (2018); ‘Av-Ve-Rez, Myuz Unveiling’, PRVT VW, New York (2018); ‘Danger To Society’, Sincerely, Tommy, New York (2018); and ‘Volume A’, Colonia Nova, Berlin, Germany (2017). BEERS London will be having a solo presentation of Matthieu's work in Summer 2019 and well as a presentation at EXPO Chicago (Sept 2019).
