About Matthew Richardson

Matthew Richardson’s ceramic wall pieces explore how meanings and messages shift, mutate and fragment through the processes and passing of time - what survives, what disappears, and what leaves a trace. These aspects are brought into play by looking at the physical, symbolic and historic properties of objects and materials. The process is one of assemblage - of gathering and connecting fragments, by folding, plaiting, stretching and squashing. Oblique and chance connections are found and built upon, allowing the material to evolve into its own particular form and identity. The meaning and function of these new objects is indeterminate and hovers between the abstract, the magical and the everyday.


Matthew lives and works in Norwich, UK. His work has been shown in gallery and museum spaces including Tactile Bosch, g39, Oriel Davies, Transition, Outpost and Kingston Museum. Commissions have included projects with the V&A, the British Library and the Poetry Society. He has worked across media, including bookworks, installation and moving image. He studied at Central St. Martins, UWIC Cardiff and Kingston School of Art, and has taught at a number of UK art colleges including UCA Maidstone, Norwich University of the Arts and the RCA.
