Footnotes

  • Matt Small's stunning portraits feature the kind of faces that rarely appear in the world of 'fine art'. He chooses subjects from the margins of society, young people who he feels deserve to be better recognized and appreciated. In selecting these subjects and placing them in an art environment, Small is hoping to break down boundaries of social class and reaffirm our awareness of their humanity. His works are executed on pieces of found wood and metal, discarded pieces of detritus which Small transforms into supports for his beautiful, painterly images. His social conscience has led him into working with people who are homeless or have been educationally excluded, and more recently he joined Swoon in running a course of workshops for children from the Robert Shitima School in Kabwe, Zambia.
