Matthew McVeigh is an interdisciplinary artist who graduated from WAAPA. His practice is predominantly interested in how identities, histories and institutions can be consumed and subsumed into homogenized narratives. McVeigh employs a wide range of materials, processes, technologies and semiotics to create work that is bold and layered with nuance and meaning.
McVeigh’s works from frequent visits to the Pilbara region employ technical drawing and graphing techniques used for geological surveying. The ochre used in these works was gifted to McVeigh by traditional landowners. McVeigh’s works have been acquired by collections such as the Holmes à Court Collection and the Art Gallery of WA Collection.
