Mather, often known by his monikers X-O or thelostobject, uses materials collected in his world wanderings to create assemblages which he likes to call ‘Lost Objects.’ Often he creates these assemblages on a large scale on the street, but for the exhibition ‘Resonancy’ he has materialized more intimate pieces for the gallery setting.
Additionally, Mather will also be showing a small selection of paintings on abandoned paper from the series ‘Stars and Charts.’
About Hyland Mather
Hyland Mather, aka X-O, is both a street artist and gallery artist and also owns Andeken / Battalion gallery in Amsterdam.
Mather summarizes his own work as follows: “I make stuff from junk. I pick up messes and try to make them into something I think looks good. I use the junk from the city, I use the stuff from the field, I use the bits in the forest, and the things in the trash. I hunt, I collect, I gather, but only what I need for the work, for the play. Color, shape, composition. Some lost stuff gets found again.”
