Matthew Rundle - Housemates Camping
Fri 11 Dec - Sun 17 Jan
LAUNCH: 6pm, Friday 11 December
It could be said that Matthew Rundle’s paintings are as much about colour as they are about his subject matter. It could also be implied that Matthew’s subjects must be colourful characters.
Housemates Camping is a series of portraits, featuring Matthew himself and the people he shares his home with, on camping trips. These paintings are generated by a technique that displays bravery, confidence and a good measure of humour. Matthew allows his paintings to emerge from a succession of instantaneous decisions about colour and brush, building layers of texture as a substrate for his endearingly bizarre figures to inhabit.
Matthew Rundle is a young Cairns based artist, dedicated to his medium. He works from the Artists@work Studio on Sheridan Street, Cairns.
The By Myself Solo Series is a partnership initiative between Tanks Arts Centre and ARC Disability Services and has received funding from Arts Queensland Showcase Program.
