Matthew Farrar


Through an apprenticeship straight from school, Matthew Farrar developed his relationship with the lens and made his new home in the dark rooms beneath the old victorian railway station in Brighton, England.

The relationship took an early twist as opportunities arose in his other love of music. His journey took him through many of the worlds greatest cities and the need to document his travels came to the fore, giving rise to a long awaited reunion with photography in it’s shiny new digital form.

His work is an insight into how the eyes feed his mind, the deconstruction of structure into patterns and geometric form. A world of aesthetic values highlighted by shape and shadow, liquid and colour. We are granted access to perspectives that may otherwise have been missed. His abstractions show a clear distinction from photojournalism in the artistic approach to his composition. Minimalism, drawn and framed from the lure of colour and form, he cuts bold and striking segments from the pallet of all that is in front of him. Through his travels, the artist takes every moment to document the world as it flashes past. The varied landscape of cultures, through time zones of tradition and method. He shows us that everything we see around us has been designed and constructed with a purpose and a vision. There is art in everything. It is in the building blocks of our cities and speaks loudly of what has been, and indeed inspires what is yet to come.
