by London-based artist Matthew Stone. He creates human landscapes. In his photography Stone uses the interplay of light and darkness to create raw material for his sculptural works. The human landscapes are monumental and simple, strong and fragile. His mounds of naked bodies are presented as multidimensional beings full of life.
Matthew Stone is an artist and shaman. These two interconnected roles are defined by his activities as photographer, sculptor, performance artist, curator, writer, Optimist and cultural provocateur. Stone’s work and thinking goes far beyond the remit of his art, and his power of existence is recreating the role of the artist in the 21stcentury. Recognising this, The Sunday Times recently placed him at number one in the arts section of their “Power players under 30” list.
