 "Pair(s)" september - december 2015

Born in the United Kingdom in 1977, he lives and works in London.

Matthew Darbyshire studied with sculptor Phyllida Barlow as well as at the London Royal Academy Schools. His work is centered on the notions of class and (good or bad) taste. Darbyshire studies the world around us through the lens of the objects and design pieces we produce, buy, and live with on a daily basis. The artist sees these objects as blueprints of our ambitions, our cultural background and our ideology. What is our relationship to these objects, and what do we find appealing in them? These are the questions that Darbyshire asks through his various installations and sculptures.
