Matthew Tumbers (b. 1975, Newcastle, Australia)
It has been said many small parts create a whole. Nowhere could this be more evident than here right now within this slice of Matthew Tumbers’ creative output. Whether it is seen through the expressionistic video narratives, the salon upon salon installations, the staged studio environments with their curious assemblages or just through good old editing and collage the concept of the ‘expanding conglomerate’ is well at hand. But if this sounds all a little too much and a bit on the nose then there are the stand alone works to consider as well – like the digital images and the paintings of which some have found themselves selected in major art prizes. If that is not enough there is now music in collaboration with The Cabbage Saints and distinct lo-fi video art clips to go with it. So enjoy your time here, let the words and pictures wash over you and be refreshed. Feel free to leave a comment and Matthew will surely get back to you.
