BIO

Matthew Picton’s wall-mounted sculptures of urban environments reconstruct, in paper and vellum, aerial views of city streets and blocks. Unlike street maps, Picton’s representations are at once cartographic, topographical and cultural, incorporating period-specific texts and musical scores. Born in London England, Picton studied Politics and History at the London School of Economics. His work is included in the collections of The De Young Museum (San Francisco, CA), The Herbert Museum of Art (Coventry, UK), The Fidelity Bank collection (London, UK), The Stadt Museum (Dresden, Germany) and The New York University Langone Medical Center Collection (New York, NY).
