Matthew Hansel's practice playfully assembles varying artistic traditions and tonal registers to create uncanny, luscious, and immersive experiences. The artist overlays classical imagery with surreal elements mined from popular culture, art history and our collective unconscious. Using a mixture of humour and pathos, Hansel creates post-modern images that reflect on the history of art while exploring the flattening of artistic hierarchies in an age where technology has made imagery ubiquitous.
