Rehgan De Mather has quickly established himself as an artist to watch. Since completing his BVA at Monash University, he’s had 25 solo and 30 group exhibitions; is represented in numerous public and private collections in Australia, Singapore, UK, USA and Ireland; has been the finalist in many high-profile awards including the Brett Whiteley Travelling Art Scholarship, Doug Moran National Portrait Prize and The Lester Prize; was selected as the 2013 RAW Melbourne Visual Artist of the Year; and has been awarded multiple artist residencies.

“De Mather’s works are noisy, vulnerable, exuberant and rich in layering and stray meanings.”
Rodney Forbes

“The colour, humour, and honesty of De Mather’s work is a refreshing antidote to the mundanities of everyday life”
Briar Holt

I am more interested in the marks we leave behind, as opposed to those we try to make, as they represent the thing that happens when we’re not looking, the line that leads us elsewhere, and often, to an unexpected journey.

“If Jean-Michel Basquiat and Pablo Picasso were capable of birthing an unruly bastard child he would probably resemble Rehgan De Mather…”
