Matthew So (b. 2000, Hong Kong) interacts with his paintings as complex, living entities. He produces intuitively, projecting rich mental landscapes onto his canvases. Colour and form simultaneously wrestle and coalesce in his oeuvre, attaching to different feelings and symbols in each work. Using heightened abstraction, he illustrates diverse psychological conditions, reflecting various formal, mental, and even real-life relationships and states of ambiguity. So understands visual language as an expression of the unspeakable and indescribable, affirming the power of his paintings in communicating internal feelings and psychological circumstances beyond spoken word. So’s practice transmutes the traumatic, transforming buried emotions into fields of luminous saturation.
