Mat Collishaw's This Is Not An Exit

Mat Collishaw

Mat Collishaw discusses the historic tradition of depicting the abyss and the sublime within art and literature in reference to the anxieties of meaninglessness. The patterns that are recurrent in his exhibition 'THIS IS NOT AN EXIT' allude to overwhelming feelings of nothingness by painting insignificant objects on a monumental scale to create a field of void. 'THIS IS NOT AN EXIT' was exhibited at Blain|Southern London from 14 February – 30 March 2013.
