Matthew Stone explores the figure through a combination of painting and digital manipulation, presenting segmented busts and bodies splayed out in abstracted three-dimensional spaces. After painting a series of individual brushstrokes, Stone photographs the gestures and sculpts them around digital figures using several software programs. The wrapped figures hover, twist, and contort above embedded shadows which give the illusion of depth. The final scenes are then printed onto raw linen. These digital paintings were presented as part of Stone’s recent solo exhibition Healing With Wounds at Somerset House in London, which closed in late August.
