Matt Coyle: Take me back to sleep - Art Collector

Matt Coyle, Take Me Back To Sleep, 2016, felt tip pen, coloured pencil, gouache on paper, 52 x 70cm Courtesy: the artist and Anna Pappas Gallery.

With an almost draughtsman-like meticulousness, artist Matt Coyle produces hyperreal drawings that excavate the boundaries of the dream-state and the real. Presenting astonishingly detailed investigations of the suburban and the everyday, Coyle infuses his works with elements of the uncanny. Exploring the symbolic potential of soil and earth, Coyle suggests something ominous about what can be revealed by digging through the surface.

Matt Coyle was born in 1971, and grew up in Canberra. After a short stint at art school in Sydney, Coyle turned his attention to drawing and has been working within this medium ever since.
