Matthew Ritchie

Matthew Ritchie's work is an amalgamation of information ranging from astrophysics to abstract painting. Fascinated by the tension between philosophical theories of logic and the reality of chance, Ritchie plays with mixed information as a medium, "To me, information is a kind of surface, a beauty all its own." Originally skeptical of being an artist, Ritchie decided to pursue a career in the arts after recognizing its academic potential. Sifting through everything from Judeo-Christian mythology to medieval history, he produces in his art intricate systems of knowledge.
