Curator Scott Phillips says:
"Matt Cahill is a contemporary artist and former assistant to Damien Hirst. His works address social issues such as anonymity, individuality and the phenomenon of the crowd. Mat asks us to look closely at the unique units within the mass, to notice their differences and nuanced distinctions, and celebrate individuals while recognising their relationship with society."

This simple pen and ink sketch is a homage to the Monday morning commute, where individual character is lost in exchange for form becoming a vessel for information.
Mat Cahill focuses on human figures, particularly grouped in queues, crowds or grids. It can take up to 400 hours to create a single work.
Individual identities can fall away in a crowd. Cahill's illustrated faces and figures represent all the strangers we might see in a day, and the way we think of people in groups. He celebrates and documents people, sometimes reclaiming individuality by capturing character in a few deft lines. Other times, he reduces people to a sketchy anonymity. Always, he's questioning what it is to be an individual in society.
