The World We Live In, No.216 (2014)

“Matthew Northridge’s work – a sundry assortment of sculptures, architectural interventions, models, altered maps, and collages – combines the intellectual discipline and refined aesthetic of the minimalist/conceptualist with the oddball charm of the tinkerer/scrapbooker. His work is about big spaces and big ideas writ small.”
- Adam Thompson, Art Papers

“By collapsing such vast dimensions into small, unobtrusive objects, Northridge seems to channel Jonathan Swift, sending the viewer traveling through his work like Gulliver.”
- Matthew Nichols, Art in America

“Matthew Northridge’s cartographic strategy relies on an empiricism based on both the virtual and the real to create works that function as relevant cultural signifiers. Northridge is a consummate collector, a discerning iconographer, an inveterate classifier, and a gifted topographer, who constructs a metaphysical landscape that is at once fantastical and yet rooted in reality.”
- Marshall Price, Matthew Northridge’s (Im)possible Journey

“Northridge challenges us to recognize modes and moments of coherence amid the fractured distractions of the modern world.”
- Noah Chasin, Time out New York
