Democratised from minimalist couture chic to high-street decor to budget home-ware chintz, Matthew’s assembled objects try to define just what it is that makes candy-coloured plastic so modern, so appealing. A provocative repackaging of the homogenisation of contemporary design: the moulded retro-furnishings and CMYK colour schemes that dominate both public and private space, his homey assemblages function as models of modern living, the kind of dioramic displays that might represent 'today' in design museums or shop windows.
Objects made up of cement, MDF, paint.
Chromed silver and gold toys robots, purple flocked telephone, painted white Beswick ornament, glass and steel.
