Matthew Dumpit’s Artwork.


This week i got to speak to and view Matthew Dumpit’s artwork. Matthew says he is looking for a show to showcase his artwork but says most likely downtown L.A. The concept of his art is based on motion and emotion, he choose these two concepts because it was always in the back of his mind, he wanted to interact with other things. It took him about 6 months to complete all the artwork that was in the gallery, says he plays with lighting a lot. It took him a while to find the right lighting but he finally found it, a 450 Illumine bulb. The materials that were used were steal, tin cans, light bulbs, and brass. His main purpose with this work was to involve emotion and motion together. You were able to move the little wire things he made and the light got dimmer and they moved, hence motion and emotion were reached! It took him about 3-4 weeks to make the chair.

His email is : MD2151@gmail.com
