Encounter - Matthew Crookes

Matthew Crookes ( New Zealand )

My practice focuses around the value of the encounter as the starting point for making and finding art. The encounter is a useful tool when negotiating the city, since it allows a consideration of what one might have missed out as well as what one notices: indeed, what is missed out, or what one thinks one might have missed, is as much a creation of the imagination as what one thinks one is seeing.
