Matt Connors: FIGURE

FIGURE marks the second solo exhibition by Matt Connors at The Modern Institute, presenting a new body of work encompassing drawing, painting and tapestry across the gallery’s Aird’s Lane and Bricks spaces.

To expand the physical potential of the artist’s work, The Modern Institute who represent Connors approached Dovecot Studios to create a tapestry derived from one of the artist’s paintings. Titled Union Bug, 2019, this painting was selected by the artist to be translated into tapestry. Dovecot Master Weaver Naomi Robertson and Weaver Emma Jo Webster were particularly drawn to the layered colours and textures of the painting. While bold blocks of colour make up the structure of the work, there is a movement and depth to the canvas, and the nuance in tones of colour and brushstrokes made it an exciting work to weave.
