About Lachlan

Lachlan Matthews

I work in oils, ceramics, bone, wood, metal, cement, resins and other media. Art is fantastical to me, an imperfect way of communication. Somehow real, a view of the matrix of life, but maybe only in your head - one of the mental
mutants that make us human.

Bones have always fascinated me. The skeleton is natures architecture of a living being and in the same way that one gets bad architecture and good so I see bones as being the best, not only are they 100% efficient but at the same time they have a wonderful elegance and simplicity. Whether finding bones washed up on the beach or in the veld I have always viewed them with a reverence, as the more durable part of a life. These bones are a slightly sad reminder, a kind of epitaph of a once living being with its own function and individuality. This would be a melancholy thought were it not that death is a moment in life, a moment not to be welcomed, but nor is it to be feared. The longer that life is remembered or seen to have once existed the more valuable it becomes to the living. To me bones are the reminder of a once special existence. A form designed by the creator, time and nature into wonderful curves, lengths and hollows, which themselves represent strength, grace and movement. My designs are a continuation of these ideas.

The illusionary nature and endless scope of art captures my imagination.

Everything I[0x1]ve seen, learnt, experienced, thought or felt thus far, I can use in creating an art piece. This is the understandable part. The charm of art however, lies in its illusionary nature. In a similar way the charm and romanticism of life lies in the aspects we see but don[0x1]t fully understand. With basic ingredients artists use their consciousness, dexterity and creative soul to impart to a painting or sculpture emotions and ideas, some of which, even the artist though recognizing, cannot fully understand.

In a world where emotion is tempered by rationality, Art serves as a point where there is no right or wrong. The viewers must be honest and look to themselves.

This is the charm enjoy the art.
