Matthew’s statement about his residency at Glass Art Kalamazoo:

“It is my intention to spend time, during the Glass Art Kalamazoo residency, working through some abstract sculptural pieces that I began sketching about three months ago. The artwork concept is a synthesis of vessels and insect forms. My entry point for this project is to create tradition vessel forms that are tweaked and exaggerated in a way that makes the viewer imagine fantastical insects. The work will require extensive assembly of prefabricated components. Some time will be spent on research and development with the purpose of using these glass colors in order to cloak the natural colors and patterns found on insects.”
