Matthew Rose

Last evening I was having a smoke with artist Matthew Rose outside his one-man show at The Orange Dot Gallery in Bloomsbury and Rose was telling me that all of his work was about being scared but also about being fresh. "It's a love story, with scissors and glue".
Matthew Rose is an American artist who has been living and working in Paris, France for the last 20 years and his current show features an intriguing mix of collage, found objects, paint and glue. Oh! And a pair of scissors... It is an engaging show in a beautiful gallery space just around the corner from the Foundling Museum. You can download a copy of the poster here.
The Orange Dot Gallery, Continental Stores, 54 Tavistock Place, London WC1. Open Monday-Saturday 11am-5pm. The show continues until 31st October 2010.

This idea is familiar...I think of the poetry of Wallace Stevens, which has always seemed to me to be an attempt to charm death by an eighteenth dentury gentleman. I think I would like this work.

Very nice to meet you Mandy. Thank you for coming to the SCARED BUT FRESH exhibition, and for the post. Very kind.
