Matthew Gallagher will give a talk and answer questions about his art and music to accompany the Belmont Gallery of Art Show RESEARCH and DEVELOPMENT. Matthew's work is about research in materiality, physics and generative processes.
"Paint and ink are classic tools for mapping self expression. I use these mediums to map the expression of physical processes, presenting an alternative method to the tradition of understanding physics through mathematics. The visualization of unseen physical forces drives the exploration of this work. Electromagnetic, sonic, gravitational and chemical processes exist around us that are constantly experienced but remain invisible. My mission is to deliver representations of these forces as art objects. Meaningful discoveries are made through play and a willingness to engage with the physical world. These objects reveal properties of our environment that wouldn't otherwise be apparent, and it is my hope that they empower people to experiment and play with their own surroundings."
