Matt Bilfield – Dowel Sculpture Installations

Matt Bilfield is a fine artist who creates incredible painting installation which comprise of thousands of dowels that are individually painted and installation on board to give the illusion of imagery. His pop art influenced works range from Lichtenstein-esque portraiture to comic-book inspired typography. Here’s what the artist says about his work:

“Being somewhat of a neat freak and minimalist who thrives on order and pragmatism, I’m drawn to specific outlets to express my inner visions. Naturally, graphic design fit the bill when it came to career selection.

In the framework of the television graphics I create, I noticed it was always the image that constantly changes as the viewer watches, inactively. In conceptualizing a series of artwork, I wanted to create pieces where the vantage point dictates the image and abundance of color, in turn activating the viewer. Where the television screen has the screen framework as its boundary, I wanted to extend that boundary to the dimensions of the room itself. My idea was that everyone viewing the art gets his or her own unique perspective.”
