MATTHEW CLIFTON – TERRA HORSE


Terra Horse is the first solo show of Matthew Clifton, an emerging artist working in a mixture of man-made and natural materials. Plywood, plastic, shop signs, and emulsion paint come together in art-objects that would seem to appear equally at home in the dwelling of a stone-age family or the lobby of a Canary Wharf bank. With a postmodern twist of tradition, Clifton’s work nods to both the Neolithic and Neoclassical, much like you’d imagine the gift shop of a World Heritage Site.

 In the heart of a Soho venue that never closes, and never opens, Terra Horse will arrive at The Door in late October. On display 24-hours a day, this corridor venue provides the ideal introduction to Clifton’s playful explorations of the unlikely clashes of disparate symbols.
