This information may change due to ongoing research. Glossary of Terms

Employing a diverse range of media—painting, sculpture, video, drawing, performance, and installationMatthew Ritchie explores the inner and outer reaches of the universe, the cosmos, and human consciousness. His poetic works weave real and imagined narratives, often informed by collaborations with experts in the fields of science, religion, architecture, history, and myth, into fantastic worlds of infinite possibility. The combustive, apocalyptic scene of Morning War has the potential to explode beyond the picture’s frame when the artist creates a wall drawing on site.
