ESCAPE FROM REALITY

MATTHEW SHUTT


I was around 6 or 7 when I went with my Mum and Nan to an old toyshop in Scarborough and bought my first set of marvel action figures. I couldn’t contain my excitement as I looked upon the wondrous imagery and signage on my way to viewing the action figures staring at me from inside their box.

It wasn’t until I saw my own son play with these old figures 30 years on did I realise I had forgotten this world. I could almost taste the pure joy and wonder. Having struggled with mental health issues as an adult I wanted to be transported back to these times with all it’s innocence and imagination.

In these works I integrate the figures with household objects, set up scenarios often of the hero saving the day, saving my day. I detach myself from reality and my thoughts of non – existence and instead in the act of painting I am immediately transported to another universe.
