Artists statement

"Matthew Gove was a joint winner of the Darebin Art Show (2013) for his work, Untitled, a Star Wars inspired ceramic lightsaber glazed in colours of green and brown. He is an emerging inter-disciplinary artist working across a variety of mediums. His art often references historical objects and figures while his “lightsaber” works explore a science fiction narrative. Gove has exhibited in group exhibitions at Arts Project Australia, Bundoora Homestead Art Centre, C3 Gallery and No Vacancy Gallery in Melbourne and at Robin Gibson Gallery in Sydney."
