Chantel Matthews is a Visual Artist. Her practice can be described as sculptural moments that explore social, political, and cultural concerns through her own subjectivity as a Woman, Mother, Artist, and Wahine Māori. Through process-led exchanges, experience is located at the centre as story-telling mechanisms, contributing to objects in the making that become both ‘things’ and ‘things that matter.’ Works and resides in Tamaki Makaurau, Aotearoa, New Zealand ( Ngati Koata, Tainui Awhiro)
