Matthew Rose spells with scissors and glue..... and he has a brand new solo show here in London at the Orange Dot Gallery!

Scared But Fresh is an exhibition of collages and unusual objects by Matthew Rose, running from October 6th to October 31st 2010.

An American artist now based in Paris, Matthew Rose is an exciting talent who creates pieces of visual delight through his cleverly crafted and beautifully laid out collages. Know particularly for his installations, massive 1000-piece wall-to-wall displays of individual collage works reinvent the process of reading. His recent exhibitions ‘Spelling With Scissors’ and ‘The Whole Truth’ brought together the artist’s immense visual and textural vocabulary in what several critics cited as a dadaist exploration of sense and nonsense.

As you're reading the Keep Calm Gallery blog you may know Matthew best for his limited edition prints and original collages, which we have been proud to offer since 2007.

His work has been featured in numerous books and magazines, most recently MASTERS: COLLAGE (Sterling Publishing/Lark Books, 2010) which will be on sale at the Orange Dot Gallery for the duration of the show.

Keep Calm Gallery will be releasing a fantastic new print from Matthew Rose shortly before the show opens. Watch this space for more information!
