Matthew's work is characterized by constant obsession showing towards contemporary royalty and to the world around it, with a focus on the amplification to which it is subjected by the mass media. His work aims to satirize the value and power of this circle by lengthening and stylization of the figures in both two- and three-dimensional works works, leading to a job whose result is a metaphor that warns the futility of both said estate in today's world as a snob or populous singing their conservation.
