Initially, Matt's work has a sense of perceived simplicity. The heightened colour values are realised by a series of controlled watercolour washes empathetic to the screen-printing process.
The methodical layering of the separate washes, applied dry on dry, allows the surface to open up a much broader palette. Forster likens the work to a sonnet in the sense that they are created within a restrictive framework and out of that limitation a greater creativity emerges.
The artist’s process is one of reductionism.
Likened to a sculptural form, the pictorial space is put through a rigorous design process until what remains is the very core of a place. Through this Forster explores the quintessence of a landscape, painstakingly executed over a series of studies, every one an advancement on the last.
New work by Matt Forster will be in the gallery and on the website shortly.
