LOCATION: London (the edge of)
Matt Healy is a London born artist who works and lives in Folkestone.
In his ‘Edgeland Vision’ series he explores liminal urban spaces, using household paint and wood stain on handmade panels of wood, foraged from industrial edgelands.
The artworks were a response to spending many days exploring the Lea Valley Park in London.
Over time, certain landmarks and their surroundings took on an almost religious significance…
Electricity pylons became the giants of Albion; the man-made chalk pits became lakes of fire; wires overlapping the sun and moon produced music of the spheres…
Until all of his surroundings in these London edgelands became interwoven with a personal mythology.
