Mat Vaughan: Rally12

Mat Vaughan

Studio documentation, 2024

Rally12 is a new exhibition of paintings by North-East Victorian artist Mat Vaughan. Based in the alpine village of Wandiligong, Vaughan conceives of painting as an active and ongoing process, frozen only at the moment works enter the gallery space. Vaughan’s paintings are worked on, erased, and reworked, sometimes with years between activity. They draw from the environment surrounding Vaughan’s alpine studio but are ultimately abstract exercises. Vaughan’s works hold the idea that nothing is permanent, but alive and in a continuous state of flux.
