Matthew Albanese

Matthew Albanese creates beautiful outdoor scenes, photographed from the tabletop of his studio. These landscapes can include things such as cotton wool, parsley, moss, glitter, garbage bags, and many other things that you can find in the average home. Each scene is made with extreme care and caution, and when photographed, appear realistic. Some pieces, such as the ‘Everything We Ever Were’ piece, took two months, as Matthew had to store up enough fireplace ash to create the lunar landscape. All this comes from the inspiration and fascination of film, special effects and movie magic, and especially the mechanisms behind these illusions. The ‘accidental’ beginning of the lifetime landscape project came about when, in 2008, a spilled canister of paprika inspired him to create his first mini Mars landscape.
