Room #210 | Kumo
Matthew Stuckey is an artist and designer who works across many disciplines and media. His commercial and personal work often deals with the subject of how to utilise and humanise spaces, be they a flat canvas, a wall or the 3D built environment. Other murals by Matthew can currently be seen on Leigh Street, Ebenezer Place and Sym Choon Lane. Matthew has painted two rooms at the Minima Hotel and is the curator for the Minima Art Hotel Project.
"This abstract pattern evolves in form and meaning each time I paint it. I began using these minimalist shapes after attending an exhibition of Japanese Byubo screens (Kumo = cloud in Japanese); where simple, elongated cloud shapes were used to fill the space between small sections of intricate detail. The clouds were originally only a background element in my illustrations, but I found I enjoyed the challenge of using such a basic shape to create an interesting composition more so than presenting overtly literal or figurative images. I prefer to create an image which is, like a cloud; simple, dynamic, abstract and impossible to contain ... allowing every viewer to project their own interpretation and hence make it a creation of their own."
So close to everything.
