Third Degree; Mat Collishaw

Third Degree, Mat Collishaw

 

In 2013 Mat Collishaw was invited to create a limited edition as a Grain, New Art Gallery Walsall and Library of Birmingham co-commission.   The print is available to purchase at a special price.  Visit www.grainphotographyhub.co.uk for more information.

Collishaw makes alluring, poetic and shocking work with a visual language that embraces diverse media.  Themes and subjects from histories and religion are explored, often the darker side of nature and human character, and yet the work is beautiful and awe-inspiring.   He is interested in the history of photography, in its subjects, techniques and machinery and often references histories in his work, in particular the Victorian period.
