Matthew’s View

Tom Howing's avatar Tom Howing Vote Code: 68808

Shown is a collection of nine drawings created by my youngest son Matthew, depicting his unique personal experiences. Matthew has told me, that he sees the world through his eyes. It’s a world in which he was diagnosed with Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD) at the age of three. Over the years, he as been challenged by everyday activities that most of us take for granted – verbal communication, loud sounds, lights and personal contact. His pencils, pens and paper have become the vehicle in which observation and expression pours through him, showing a perspective unadulterated. A perspective that seems only achieved when societal norms, which the majority of us feel obligated to settle for, are beyond reach. What he creates is pure and powerful.
