He was recently part of an artist exchange to Sichuan, China, completing work for Pengzhou City’s permanent collection. His work is in collections in Australia, Malaysia, France, Germany, China and the United States.

I paint scenes from an inner world with its own internal logic. I typically begin with three or four bright colours, allowing errors in transcription to remain. I like to compress or explode colour and tone to create tension within the subject matter, to explore how such a dynamic device can be transformed by candy-pinks or by the serenity of indigo. This is partly a way to embrace my colour blindness, but also a conscious decision to leave as much of myself on the page as possible.” Matthew Cheyne 2019.
