Mathew Borrett's "Room Series" is very reminiscent of M. C. Escher's drawings of impossible, mind-bending architectural spaces. Borrett's drawings creating outlandish, strangely displaced structures forming a dream-driven world of nightmares and fantasies that have an array of details to draw you in and out of the various rooms, exploring their relationships and potential narratives.

'Born in 1972, I grew up in rural Ontario surrounded by horses and hay, and I'm inconveniently allergic to both. This didn't keep me from constructing elaborate hay forts and a bit of horse riding, but it meant that when the air was particularly heavy with pollen I'd more likely be holed up in my room drawing, building elaborate things with lego, and making primitive computer graphics on my Commodore 64.'
