We are really proud to announce the collaboration with a new talented contemporary artist: Matthew Hindley (b. 1974, Cape Town, South Africa).
Matthew Hindley graduated from the Michaelis School of Fine Art, Cape Town in 2002; where he was awarded the Michaelis Prize for the best final exhibition in his year.
As one of the South Africa’s most recognised emerging painters, Hindley’s intense, poetic and delving artworks have featured in various critical and seminal South African and international exhibitions. A series of solo shows charts a loose progression from figuration to abstraction. From the show “An Everlasting Once at Brundyn, in Cape Town (2011) to the transitional “The Divided Self” and climaxing with ’Double Rainbow’ (2021) mapped out the progression in his relationship with painting which evolved as a non-figurative exploration. Hindley’s practice has also maintained an interest in the possibilities of science to produce art, expressed in a number of key works.
