Mixed-media and sculptural artist Matt Bilfield lives and works in Los Angeles. Somewhat of a neat freak and minimalist who thrives on order and pragmatism, he is drawn to detail oriented, creative outlets to express his inner vision. These factors naturally influenced his career selections to focus on graphic design and explore 3-dimensional art.
This 23" wide, 23" tall and 3" deep artwork, is number three of a series of five unique, hand-created artworks with a similar imagery. It is wired and ready to hang. It is signed on one of the pegs on the front bottom right of the artwork. A certificate of authenticity and hanging hardware are included.
Bilfield's artworks are an extension of his attachment to planned design concepts. He creates each composition using painted wooden dowels anchored in architectural plywood. A pixelated representation of a single image emerges from his careful placement of each individually colored peg.
In the framework of the television graphics he creates, Matt is intrigued by the constant change of the image as the viewer watches, inactively. This perpetual shifting of visual stimuli caused him to conceptualize artwork where the vantage point dictates the image and saturation of color, in turn activating the viewer. While the television has the screen framework as its boundary, he wants to extend that limit to the dimensions of the room itself. His idea is that everyone viewing the art will have his or her own unique perspective.
He enjoys the challenge of getting the most functional and aesthetic impact out of design simplicity. In creating the subject matter for his work, his goal is to push the amount of emotion he’s able to portray using a methodical medium that forces him to make definitive color placement choices. Often times the placement of only a few pegs can directly affect the overall mood of each piece.
