From the Alps
To the sea
Long and brown
And mighty
River red
Gum rise high

In Echuca
My folks settled down
They're on both sides

Of the Murray now

Matthew Griffin is an Australian artist currently living and working in Sydney. He was born in Bendigo, Victoria, in 1976. Matthew Griffin’s practice engages a range of media including video, installation, sculpture, photography, collage and photomontage. Recurring themes in his work include body-object relations, the makeshift and haphazard as sculptural qualities, the contemporary ubiquity of cameras and the resulting difficulty of producing meaningful images in the post-internet age. In recent projects Griffin has examined the way humour functions in both a visual and narrative form, and the ethical dilemmas associated with the production of contemporary art.
