Matt Sheridan’s Exchange(s) premieres at Teneriffe Festival on July 1st. Matt will take over the gallery for a VIP preview of new paintings and paintings-in-motion. Gai Campbell from Libertine Perfumery will match fragrances to paintings to connect the senses of smell and sight.
Los Angeles based artist Matt Sheridan describes his painting as ‘video-based action painting’.
Trained as an animator, Sheridan earned his BFA from NYU/Tisch School of the Arts in New York and his MFA from Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, California. Over the past two decades Sheridan worked on television productions like Beavis and Butt-Head and Blue’s Clues, screened work in two Olympic Games, exhibited in museums such as Centre Pompidou and the Jeu de Paume in Paris and CICA Museum in South Korea.
Sheridan creates conceptual paintings and video based paintings-in-motion, investigating the concepts of construction, editing, narrative and television formatting in bold, high definition colour.
Sheridan will be collaborating with Teneriffe Festival on a commission called Exchanges that will light up the historic London Wool Store at the festival on July 1st. With a gallery takeover event where the painting-in-motion will preview alongside a series of new paintings.
