Rob Matthews

Nashville, TN 


Rob Matthews was born in North Carolina and raised in Mississippi and Tennessee. He received his BFA from the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, and his MFA from Virginia Commonwealth University. Matthews examines themes of upheaval, power, and displacement.  Some of his subjects are heroes and others are villains. The remaining are caught in the middle.  His work is made with the intent to spend time considering historical events and the people that get lost in the shuffle of the ever-changing news cycle.
