Matthew Clifton

Matthew Clifton makes things that stand between the ley lines of burial grounds and business parks, a distorted
folk vernacular that has diligently steam-rollered a hardware shop. One thing Tudor motif and local authority graphics have in common is that they’re fair game for the Selco treatment.
Carpet tiles, gold leaf, System 3 acrylic, emulsion paint, these are bolt-ons. I find culture in car journeys and the shit that people put on their walls. This is a meditation on material
egalitarianism. I don’t know why I bother (and I really bother), the act of making and the result are a folly.
