Exploring contemporary food culture in a playful way.
Food is an integral part of our memories, culture, and everyday lives. Toys by their miniature nature propose a different perspective, easily drawing us into another point of view. By using food and toys together I construct worlds that may seem strangely familiar; and upon further examination, also reveal unexpected scenarios. Blurring the lines of reality by altering the scale of people, food, and landscapes. Telling stories through pictures – sometimes humorous, sometimes serious, but always rooted in our universal connection to food and each other.
"With a dreamy quality his work creates worlds somewhere between reality and memories...." -R. Hackert, Collector
More about Matthew:
Los Angeles born Artist Matthew Carden grew up on a hearty diet of museums, theme parks, TV, and Movies. This surreal world of toys, pop culture, and fantasy of the 70's and 80's formed Matthew's colorful way of seeing and creating images.
When he was 20 he moved to San Francisco, finished school at SFAI, then opened the first fully Digital photo studio in the Bay Area. He then teamed up with his future wife, specialized in food photography, worked for an impressive list of clients, won awards, and traveled extensively for a wide range of projects.
"He approaches every subjects with a curiosity and sense of humor; juxtaposing food and common everyday items in unexpected ways to illustrate an idea or tell a story."
-A. Martin, Art Director
"...he has his very own perspective on food – quite literally: his work allows us to see food in a unique, witty, and enchanting way; close up, like a wildlife biologist who has managed to creep up on the object of his research."
-M. Hoffman, Regal Literary
Matthew and his wife (a Chef/Author/Stylist) still provide food Photography and Styling for clients. Their website is 350degrees.com.
His work is exhibited, collected, and published internationally.
