Made for You?: A Solo Exhibition by Matthew Kel


Made For You?: A Solo Exhibition by Matthew Kel
14th – 28th April
Opening Night: Friday 13th April, 6-9pm

Surface Gallery is pleased to present the second instalment of Made For You?, a series of multi-venue exhibitions by artist Matthew Kel.   

Following on from his successful This Way Up exhibition in 2017, Midlands-based artist and printmaker Matthew Kel continues his exploration and fascination with the social construct of capitalism and its salient relationship with modern popular and consumer culture. Using repetition, scale and aesthetical qualities and production methods adopted from 1960’s Pop Art, Kel adopts a variety of media, to reflect his personal point of view, formed over 10 years of working in the fast food industry. His installation work reflects the thirst for mass consumerism that embodies so much of contemporary life, using mediums such as screen printing and sculpture.  This exhibition will coincide with the conclusion of Kel’s Masters Degree at the University of Derby. 

Made For You? opens in the Project Space in conjunction with Reflection: Contemporary Portraiture in the Main Gallery. As always on the Opening Night, there will be a donations bar with ales from local brewery, Springhead.

Free Entry: All Are Welcome
