An Exhibition of Collages and Unusual Objects by Matthew Rose
6th October 31st October

Matthew Rose spells with scissors and glue…..

An American artist now based in Paris, Matthew Rose is an exciting talent who creates pieces of visual delight through his cleverly crafted and beautifully laid out collages.

Know particularly for his installations, massive 1000-piece wall-to-wall displays of individual collage works reinvent the process of reading. His recent exhibitions Spelling With Scissors and The Whole Truth brought together the artists immense visual and textural vocabulary in what several critics cited as a dadaist exploration of sense and nonsense. Surrealism moves into the 21st century with Roses collages, text works, needlepoints and altered objects and books. Combining beautifully laid colours and patterns with secrets and riddles his works stimulate both the mind and eye.

Matthew Roses artworks have been exhibited throughout Europe, Asia and the United States for more than 20 years, and his art is collected both privately and by public collections. His work has been featured in numerous books and magazines, most recently MASTERS: COLLAGE (Sterling Publishing/Lark Books, 2010) which will be on sale at the Orange Dot Gallery for the duration of the show.

Matthew has also created an EXCLUSIVE PRINT to coincide with the show and will be available exclusively online from, with a limited number of signed prints also available from Orange Dot Gallery.

An exciting artist, exhibition and opportunity to view his works in a more intimate space.
