Matthew Simmonds - architectural sculptures

The architectural sculptures of Matthew Simmonds play upon ideas of scale, antiquity, enclosure and the very fundamental psychological bedrock of our relationship with the spaces we occupy. There is a profound sense of understanding this typology of forms and voids as our lives are spent almost entirely, navigating, personalizing and reimagining the built spaces of our urban environments. The mental action of "inhabiting" each of these sculptures, even when seen only in two dimensional reproduction is involuntary and quite physical. The body-memories we store, which are the archive of our occupancy and movement in relation to buildings, are extensive and sub-linguistic. These sculptures brilliantly engage this vast repertoire in an intriguing and compelling way.
