Kate Matthews‘ practice explores the limits of geometric and optical painting through the use of color, repetition, sequence and distortion. She creates 3D art with a striking optical effect. In each piece of art, a 2D painting is transformed through sculpture, architecture, and geometry.

Matthews breaks down the rules of established, modernist, two-dimensional abstraction. Obscuring the rules of fixed, consecutive arrangements, her work generates a sense of unease by creating broken and fragmented shapes whilst in a uniform composition. As the viewer moves around the work, the forms, shapes and shadows alter, creating a sense of disorientation and surprise.
