Matt Hinkley

Gertrude Studio Artist

2009 - 2010

Matt Hinkley’s artworks range in scale from the modest to the minute. Challenging the tiny scale on which he works with an understated yet elaborate aesthetic, Hinkley pays great attention to the palette and composition of each object. On close inspection, Hinkley’s artworks demonstrate painstaking intricacies as he makes carefully cast objects and inscribes dazzlingly intricate patterns on small-scale plaster and silicon sculptural forms. In the age of digital reproduction, Hinkley’s meticulous and delicate carvings are refreshing and perversely anachronistic.
