Untitled by Matt Butterworth
Spray, acrylic and fabric over stretched canvas | 150 x 120
This artwork (Untitled) is part of my ongoing exploration into the inherent beauty of flora found throughout Victoria. Plant specimens (of varying kinds) become both material and subject in a painting deeply linked to performance and ‘Action Painting’. Each plant is selected via an organic process based on feeling and impulse. Once chosen I set out arranging these materials in a way that connects them. I aim to create contrasts and dynamic surfaces. Paint is the final act, cementing their ‘silhouettes’ onto material and finalising the overall image.
