Matty Smith

I dream; I watch; I see; I plan; I explore; I experiment.... I weave. Repeat.

Although I have been involved in textile activities for over three decades, including hand spinning, hand dyeing and weaving of cloth, I have found in tapestry weaving a textile medium that more completely enables my creativity to find expression. I find it has the unique characteristic of combining opportunistic spontaneity whilst developing in a very measured way over time.

Whilst much of my work draws on observation of everyday life, I am increasingly extending my ideas into more conceptual pieces and three-dimensional weaving as well as exploring collaboration with traditional artists through re-interpretation of their work.
