2018 - 2014
Recent works continues an interest in the deterioration of the body via inherited conditions and working environments. Gayle Matthias explores waste/abjection from a variety of standpoints: as the unseen, the discarded material/found object, as a by-product of my artistic practice, as loss of the pottery and coal mining industries that provided an identity and value for a community in the Potteries, manifest as geographical waste. This collection of work featured in 'S-O-T Body Repairs' solo exhibition.
