Matthew Beasant

Painting, Booth 830

Matt is a self-taught artist who grew up on a lake in Northwestern Ontario. There he countered the loneliness and confusion of his sexuality by spending time alone in the forest. Raised almost completely without religion or spiritual doctrine, Matt was able to freely form his own perspective on spirituality. This exploration allowed the landscapes to speak to him; their lines and hidden geometric systems acting as expressions of human emotions. Underlying this narrative is a fascination with elements of geology, biology, and theoretical physics.
