Mat Collishaw (English, born 1966)
Mat Collishaw’s work deals with themes of representation and illusion, often through the combination of different types of media. For example, his projections of video onto three-dimensional objects such as a bird onto a bell jar. Collishaw’s subject matter merges the beautiful with the disturbing, including a series of digitally-altered photographs in which images of diseased flesh became exotic flowers. Collishaw was born in Nottingham and studied at Goldsmiths College in London, where his work was included in the influential ‘Freeze’ exhibition, organised by Damien Hirst. He works predominantly with video, installation and photography.
