I am very excited to have one of my collages from Death Landscapes III featured in Bonk! Magazine #3.2 – The Lines issue. Bonk! Magazine is an experimental print publication that showcases the work of writers and artists. It is also an exploration of the possibilities of print and design as mediums. They publish text, images, and design loosely organised around a single theme. This magazine, along with previous issues can be purchased via their website.

Presence of Absence on It’s Nice That

Mattlee_poa1

My recent ‘Presence of Absence’ print series has been featured on the fantastic It’s Nice That website. I really like their description of the work:

Matt Lee’s Presence of Absence photographic series features a “decontextualised black shape” looming ominously over a Bangalore apartment block. The title of the work suggests the shape is some kind of infinite void of time and space, poised on the brink of causing unthinkable chaos and destruction. Or perhaps it’s a giant black obelisk serving as a memento mori constantly reminding us of our fleeting time on this mortal plane. Either way it’s very sinister, or I’m very paranoid.
