Matthew Killick has spent the last few years making paintings that were largely inspired by his underwater explorations. Now the work has brought in other influences. He describes the work as an attempt to bring together in harmony elements of naturally occurring patterns or structures, and man-made ones.
Drawing from a diverse range influences, from urchin shells, whale skin, sand ripples, to galaxy formations, city lights and aboriginal paintings, he creates black and white paintings that he hopes capture something of the infinite. There is a sense of isolation yet connectedness that runs throughout this series of works.
