Folkestone, Kent, CT20 1JU
Matt Rowe’s object based practice is focused on vernacular symbols and the language of folklore.
He often combines various disciplines, ceramics, model making and textiles to produce sculptural costumes, props and artifacts that play with notions of regional and local identity. He uses his costumes and props as a means to create unexpected structures in the landscape that echo with associations of storybook narratives and ancient legends.
Continuingly photographing his structures, he is developing a portfolio of landscape images that blur the real and the imaginary.
