Matthew Johnson (1963)
Matthew Johnson was born in London in 1963 and was raised in New York and Sydney. He graduated from the National Art School in Sydney in 1984 and held his first solo exhibition at the Christine Abrahams Gallery in Melbourne in 1989. His artistic apprenticeship has been an eclectic if not a modernist one. A Melbourne-based painter, Matthew’s diverse travel and cultural experiences are distilled through the archetypal filter of oil and pigment. The underlying compositional structures of his paintings are repetitive – grids, geometric patterns, stripes or sequential arrangements drawn from nature.
Matthew has exhibited in Europe and widely in Australia, and in 2008 he completed a three-month Australia Council Residency in Barcelona, Spain. As well as having his work held in numerous private and corporate collections, Matthew is continually developing architectural installations throughout Australia
