Matthew Gove works across a variety of mediums including painting, ceramics, and soft sculpture.
His artworks reveal a penchant for quirky and humorous subject matter, humanising animals and giving them hobbies and chores. These anthropomorphised creatures exist as though they are a result of years of cohabitation and interdependency with their human counterparts, absorbing their habits and traits. Matthew Gove has worked in the Arts Project studio since 2012. His work has been included in several group exhibitions in Melbourne and Sydney, and he is represented in private collections throughout Australia.
