Mathew Jones

Australia Council for the Arts Residency

Mathew Jones is an Australian-born artist, living and working in London. Mathew’s paintings, photographs and installations confront the division between private and public life, often addressing sexuality and desire, but also fate and the passage of time. With subtlety and humour, his work examines the way in which individuals create a place in the world – drawing on such varied sources as horoscopes and telephone numbers, historical events and personal advertisements.

Selected solo and two-person exhibitions include: A Place I’ve Never Seen Before, Australian Centre for Photography, Sydney (1993); POOF!, Australian Centre for Contemporary Art, Melbourne (1993); Mathew Jones & Simon Starling, Museum of Contemporary Art Australia, Sydney (2002).

Australia Council for the Arts

Since 1992, the Australia Council for the Arts has partnered with Acme to provide London work/live residency opportunities for Australian visual artists. These residencies are located at Acme's Fire Station in Poplar, E14. Application and selection is undertaken directly by the Australia Council for the Arts.
