Running until: Friday, 13 April 2018 at 3.00 PM

Artist and printmaker Matthew Kel is currently studying an MA in visual communication at the University of Derby and will feature some of his new work at Banks Mill Studios in their gallery exhibition space this spring.

Matthew Kel takes special interest in themes, preciousness, consumerism, branding and identity, graduating from University College Falmouth in 2012. In 2013, his piece entitled ‘Tins‘ was commissioned as one of only 15 works to be included in the Rogues Galleries project in Chester. ‘Made for You?’ will be a multi venue exhibition, both in Derby and Nottingham.

Matthew comments on his work: “The aim of my work is to use themes, processes and aesthetics of 1960s Pop Art to explore my fascination with the social construct of Capitalism and its salient relationship with Modern: Popular and Consumer Culture. I produce work in multiple media, drawn from a personal point of view, formed from over a decade of working in the fast food industry.”

The exhibition runs from 26 March – 13 April and is open week days 10am-3pm (closed 30 March – 3 April over Easter). Please ring 01332 597866 if making a special journey to guarantee entry
