Mathew McWilliams is a Candian artist living in Vancouver and Paris. His work repurposes photography to produce unique objects outside the traditional formats of photographic representation. McWilliams engages with the everyday banality of paper and comes to subvert it on a level which leaves one questioning our effortless dismissals of it. Through a sensitive handling of both material and medium he is able to disorient the viewers way of interacting with the real, providing an interesting relationship between image and its support.

McWilliams work has been shown internationally including exhibitions in Europe, The United Kingdom, Canada and Australia. Notable recent exhibitions include the group show 'Like-Minded' curated by the artist Micah Lexier at Plug In, Institute of Contemporary Art Winnipeg and 'Phantasmagoria' at Presentation House Gallery, Vancouver. This was part three in a significant series of exhibitions about Vancouver Photography's notable history and it's future.The previous two show's featured work by Stan Douglas, Rodney Graham, Mark Lewis, Ian Wallace and others. Phantasmagoria focuses on where photography is headed through the work of emerging artists originally from Vancouver.
