Abandoned Concentrations Installation detail, photograph by Heather Joy. HOLDstudios © 2015


This work was presented at the Blue Heron Art Gallery on Vashon Island in March 2011 in an exhibition entitled Abandoned Concentrations, and at VERMILLION Gallery on Capitol Hill in Seattle in June 2011 in an exhibition entitled Flourishing Remnants. Matthew’s work for this project was made possible by a generous grant from 4Culture.

The greenhouse and the artist studio have a great deal in common.  Both spaces are specifically designed for the sole purpose of growing and nurturing something small and vulnerable (seeds & ideas), until it is strong enough to survive on its own in a new environment.
