Mixed-media and sculptural artist Matt Bilfield lives and works in Los Angeles. Somewhat of a neat freak and minimalist who thrives on order and pragmatism, he is drawn to detail oriented, creative outlets to express his inner vision. Inspired by comic strips and Pop artists such as Roy Lichtenstein, Bilfield creates three-dimensional sculptural artworks.

Bilfield's artworks are an extension of his attachment to planned design concepts. He relates the idea of pixilation in his work to old television graphics, from the age before digital. In this framework Bilfield is intrigued by the constant change of the image as the viewer watches, inactively. This perpetual shifting of visual stimuli causes him to conceptualize artwork where the vantage point dictates the image and saturation of color, in turn activating the viewer. While the television has the screen framework as its boundary, he wants to extend that limit to the dimensions of the room itself. His sculptural artworks feature thick outlines, bold colors and pegs acting as dots, critically transforming the comic inspired images.

He enjoys the challenge of getting the most functional and aesthetic impact out of design simplicity. In creating the subject matter for his work, his goal is to push the amount of emotion he’s able to portray using a methodical medium that forces him to make definitive color placement choices. Often times the placement of only a few pegs can directly affect the overall mood of each piece.

Matt Bilfield

Mixed-media and sculptural artist Matt Bilfield lives and works in Los Angeles. Somewhat of a neat freak and minimalist who thrives on order and pragmatism, he is drawn to detail oriented, creative outlets to express his inner vision. These factors influenced his career selections to focus on graphic design and explore three-dimensional art.

Matt Bilfield’s mixed media artworks are a fusion of pop art and contemporary three-dimensional design, constructed from wooden dowels anchored into architectural plywood. He takes aspects of digital technology and expresses the pixilation and color graduation in more traditional media. A pixelated representation of a single image emerges from his careful placement of each individually colored peg.
