Danny Matthys sees each work as part of a larger process. This way, each individual work can always be reused to create another work.
Matthys is one of the first artists to use Polaroid photography, exploring the many possibilities the medium has to offer.
Matthys tries to break through the limitations of time/space perception. This research takes shape in a series of photographs, Polaroid structures and video installations. He uses these media as neutral as possible. Uncovering structures takes precedence over aesthetics. It is Matthys's objective to make the viewer clearly aware of the (complexity of) visual perception.
