Matthew Cole- Galerie L'inlassable
Matthew Cole

Matthew Cole was born in 1987 in USA. He lives and works in Queens, New York and Paris, France.

Cole is a painter who employs traditional painting and preliminary printmaking methods to interpret memories of actual and subconscious events – amalgamations of real life and fantasy, often stemming from profound personal experiences. The processes of layering and distorting are instrumental in conveying emotion in his work. The artist uses composite imagery to represent the fragmented nature of memory, narrated through personal as well as familiar references from art history.
