Biography

Matthew Ritchie's art explores the universe and its structures of knowledge and belief. His paintings, works on paper, sculptures, videos, and installations typically begin from drawings scanned into a computer so that forms can be taken apart and manipulated. The 2009 animated projection Line Shot uses Ritchie's characteristic imagery (Rorschach-like symmetry and proliferating semiabstract forms rendered in light-filled colors) to journey through space and time, from creation to apocalypse and from the subatomic to cosmic vastness.
