Mathew Borrett

September 22 to October 16, 2021
Reception: Saturday September 25, 2 – 5 PM

The Red Head Gallery is pleased to present A Break in the Clouds, an exhibition by Mathew Borrett.

Borrett builds a playful series of loosely themed worlds. Inspiration for these places range from a summer trip to Nova Scotia, playing Minecraft with his nephew, and ideas from 80’s science fiction novels. The work continues Borrett’s exploration of vast landscapes crafted with densely intricate detail and sparse fragments of narrative.

Born in rural Ontario, Mathew Borrett is a Toronto-based artist and illustrator. In addition to exhibiting in Canada and internationally. He’s worked in the VFX industry for TV and Film, as well as projects in Virtual Reality, such as the Canadian Screen Award-winning “Biidaaban, First Light” with Lisa Gerrard and the NFB in 2018. Borrett graduated from the Illustration Program from the Ontario College of Art & Design in 1998.
