It’s been a catastrophic year for artist Matthew Gorst. Beginning with the artist suffering a stroke, being admitted to hospital, traveling to Thailand and concluding in the BRI in Bristol and a psychiatric hospital ward in south Gloucestershire it’s not surprising that the majority of the artworks he has created were born out of a stream of consciousness during this tumultuous time and a vivid visual response to these life-changing events.

The exhibition is a mix of original pieces: painted, penciled and scribbled on found material, bits of scrap wood or cardboard and prints manipulating analogue drawing processes with digital software.

Also on display will be a series of sculptures made from found objects discovered by the artist while on walks with his dog.
