Sabotage is a new series of works by Mather focusing on impact: literal collisions, grand apocalyptic blasts and crashes in space achieved through line and colour.
The paintings’ images are inspired by geological formations, folded paper sculptures and Soviet science fiction films while the small-scale sculpture showing combines concrete with enamel and folded aluminium to resemble the lost detritus of a neon apocalypse.
This exciting work reveals the possibilities of construction and destruction in painting, an imagined future, both glittering and synthetic in a state of toxicity and decay.
