ActionSpace is delighted to announce that Matthew Berry was selected for Shape Open 2017 which will be at the Ecology Pavilion in Mile End from 19 January – 2 February 2017 with his Don’t worry about the Money Honey piece.
Matthew Berry is an abstract artist who works in a range of media and uses his work to communicate his feelings and life experiences.
“Don’t Worry About the Money Honey” expresses his frustration that other people are constantly making decisions for him, often without consulting him. People think that because Matthew has a learning disability he does not have anything to say about the way he wants his life to be.
Matthew is, in general, a happy, positive, well meaning person, but being ignored and marginalised makes him feel like his life is spiraling out of control and he wants to shout.
Luckily he has his artwork, where he can shout as much as he wants to.
