Matthew Roby‘s junk sculptures are fun. They may not have any grand, deep, profound statement to make but they are well executed and are assembled with an interesting use of materials. It would have been easier to make this artworks in malleable materials but instead Roby has used cast resin, mixed metals and junk such as old machinery, scrap metal and objects from house clearances. It’s his use of these materials that interests me most. It’s these materials that inform the character of the piece – the will of the material playing its part in the final work.
Roby is also an illustrator specialising in character design, visual narratives and story writing.
