Matthew Collings is an art critic and painter working along and in collaboration with his wife Emma Biggs as the duo Biggs and Collings, exhibiting at Linden Hall studio in 2019 in the Winter Group Show.
Collings completed an MA at Goldsmiths starting in 1990, part time alongside his job at the BBC writing art Programs. He went back to art school to re-engage in the process of making and creating. He met Emma a few years later and began collaborating.
“How do you navigate being both an artist and an art critic?
They’re the same to me. From infants’ school on, I was always telling everyone what everything means, and always drawing and painting. “
