End of the World

by Matthew Rose

Description

THE END OF THE WORLD (REALLY BUILT TO LAST) is Paris-based artist Matthew Rose's latest surreal fantasy about the fragility of world we live in and the end of the world we've built.

Based on an original collage from 2008, THE END OF THE WORLD, reports from the frontiers of the real and dream worlds, where foods and animals, naughty little boys and errant little girls enter into the visual field and run, jump, hang and float in and around an assortment of human narratives that are veering dangerously out of control.

This work, and others in the series, will appear in Masters of Collage (Lark Press, USA) in May 2010.This print also has a border for framing, see additional images below.

  • Limited edition of 85
  • Signed & numbered by the artist
  • Giclee print on Hahnemuhle paper
  • 290mm by 290mm (11½ by 11½ in)

The Artist

Matthew Rose, an American artist based in Paris, spells with scissors.

His installations, massive 1000-piece wall-to-wall displays of individual collage works reinvent the process of reading. His exhibitions 'Spelling With Scissors' and 'God & Country' and 'A Kick in the Kunst' brought together the artist's immense visual and textural vocabulary in what several critics cited as a dadaist exploration of sense and nonsense. Surrealism moves into the 21st century with Rose's collages, text works, drawings, needlepoints and altered objects and books – works that are perhaps described as secrets wrapped in riddles that are visually baked and often French-fried.

 
Matthew's art is widely collected throughout the UK, Europe and the United States.
