Matt Greenwood – Info / CV
Matt Greenwood’s main interests focus around sculpture and photography, and in particular, the conversation that arises when we perceive the photograph as a physical object, which could become manipulated further to alter our perception of the printed image. He uses the studio environment to assist in the record of his sculptures, by allowing the physical constructs to be witnessed only through this particular documentation. This disruption of viewing a sculpture renders each image a visual record of the event, questioning if the final photograph is the concluding artwork; or if the object seen within the image is the main art construct. The photograph is able to alter our ordinary experiences of how we could approach a sculpture within a space, resulting in the relationship between the surface and structure to become less predictable.
Matt Greenwood was born Lincolnshire, England in 1991. After working as Photography Technician for three years, Matt began studying BA Hons Photography at Falmouth University, Cornwall, where he is due to graduate in July 2017. His work has been exhibited throughout various galleries across the UK, including London and Falmouth. Matt has also assisted various artists across the UK, including interning as a Studio Assistant for Nadav Kander and has recently gained a job as a Photographer for Tate Galleries.
