Mathew Borrett: Hinterlands
April 26, 2023 – May 20, 2023
Opening Reception: Friday May 5, 2023 from 5 – 8pm with artist present.
From virtual bird’s eye vantage points above his hometown of Toronto, Mathew Borrett renders a variety of improbable visions of the city, revisiting rich thematic territory. With a science-fiction sensibility and a touch of the surreal, the artist reorients the city’s most familiar landmarks both spatially and temporally. Some of the works depict over-the-top manifestations of climate change, which for the artist are meditations on human resilience through the churning of time. Borrett dwells often on the impermanence of civilizations, and thinks about the previous ice-age, not that long past, when a vast kilometer-thick sheet of ice sat upon the region where he now resides.
Mathew Borrett was born and raised in rural Ontario and graduated from the Illustration Program at the Ontario College of Art & Design in 1998. He has exhibited in Canada and internationally, and works in the VFX industry for film and television in Toronto. Borrett won a Canadian Screen Award for his work on the interactive virtual reality piece Biidaaban, First Light in 2018.
Mathew will be present in the gallery on May 5, 2023 from 5 – 8pm and on Saturday May 20, 2023 from 12 – 5pm.

VenueThe Red Head Gallery
The Red Head Gallery
The Red Head Gallery was established in 1990 and is Toronto’s most enduring collectively run art gallery. It has stood the test of time as an exhibition space as well as a collective where critically engaged, highly productive artists enjoy curatorial control over the presentation of their work. Over the past two decades more than 100 artists have been part of The Red Head Gallery and have produced over 200 exhibitions.
There are two accessible entrances to 401 Richmond. At the northwest corner of the building, a ramp leads upward from the sidewalk to an automatic entrance onto the building’s main floor that measures 34″ wide, and with a lip that measures 1″ high. The other entrance at the northeast corner is less evident but equally, if not more, accessible. The automatic door measures 34″ wide and inside has a gradual ramp downwards which leads towards the elevators.
