Our next artist profile falls on photographer Matt Fielding, whose unusual visual style makes his work incredibly aesthetically appealing, even if the subject matter isn’t necessarily as attractive to all.
This piece of work is centered upon the fragility of life and the fluidity death, with a link to disease and decay, and how these elements can take life away. However, Fielding is also exploring the idea that beauty can still be found even in death and destruction.
And this beauty definitely resonates through every shot. Although the subject matter itself is leaning towards a more gritty angle, the presentation of every photo alludes to the beauty of death that Matt describes.
Matt’s work can be seen as part of our current exhibition at The Strand Gallery, Peer, between the 25th and 29th of June.
