Hinterlands – Mathew Borrett

Works by illustrator and special effects expert Mathew Borrett have a science-fiction sensibility and a touch of the surreal. He is about to open Hinterlands, a new exhibition at Red Head Gallery in Toronto (April 26 – May 20). I am a fan of his climate-change influenced, dystopian Toronto – although he does lots of other work.

    • That’s a good point about the technique . . . well captured for sure. Probably because he’s so experienced in visual effects for film and tv. Thank you.
