Matthew Cordwell

Matthew Cordwell

Matthew Cordwell was born in West Sussex and is an emerging talent as a young artist. Having studied in Bristol and worked in London, Matthew comes from an artistic family. 

As a keen landscape photographer, Matthew is never short of inspiration for paintings from the British countryside. You will often find him out and about in all weather conditions in search of his next composition from the local surroundings. Over the years Matthew has developed an emotive loose style, focusing on the play of light and colour in his work.

Preferring to paint en plein air, the artist enjoys the challenge of capturing a scene of changing nature under the wonderfully diverse weather conditions of Britain. “Immersing yourself in the environment and understanding the landscape and play of light is one of the most rewarding and important aspects of painting for me. We are blessed in Britain with such a diverse range of conditions created from the seasonal shifts and daily weather changes and putting myself in the field to experience these elements and changing light is so important. Whether creating small reference studies for development in the studio or completing a painting en plein air, every brush stroke carries intent and meaning and this is what gives a painting life.” 

Matthew has travelled extensively both in the United Kingdom and further abroad, gaining reference and inspiration for his artworks.  The artist is available for commissions and special requests. For more information, please get in touch with a member of the Forest Gallery team.
