Paul Matosic - Graveyards of Stuff

Welcome to Jawspring, the exhibition that is celebrating World Poetry Day on the 21st March by fusing Art and Poetry.

Today's poet is the well known conceptual upcycler who downcycles his artistic creations on gallery floors around the world. Paul Matosic is the Nottingham based multimedia artist
whose installations use items that have been deemed useless and obsolete as a way of challenging Western consumerist attitudes. Although he creates comfortingly organised worlds, much like an architectural model or townscape, these worlds in reality are the graveyards of 'Stuff', littered with the tombstones of retail addiction. His conceptual eye helps transform detritus into topography and here for Jawspring he turns light into dark.....

if snow was black it would not matter if
you burned your mince pies.
