Here are some examples from her concrete series:

Colony, 2009, canvas and concrete on
masonite, 30 x 30 x 3" approx.
Esperar/Despertar (a Rico), 2010, gauze and concrete on reed and wire armature with unryu paper interior, 40-1/2 x 17 x 15".

As most decorative concrete artisans know, concrete is a great media for artistic expression. Kim Matthews is an artist from Minneapolis who uses concrete to create postminimal relief constructions. "Rather than the customary cast or poured concrete one often sees on sculpture, my work uses concrete as a surface treatment on canvas reliefs," she explains. Matthews' work translates her spiritual and emotional experiences into tangible forms. She is currently exploring new media: felted wool and cast paper.

Projectile, 2009, concrete and iron oxide on styrofoam, paper cord. Approx" 6 x 6 x 24". Relief III, 2009, concrete on canvas on masonite 24-5/8 x 24-1/2 x 1-1/2" approx.

One of her concrete pieces, Colony, was recently selected by the editor of American Craft magazine for inclusion in a juried show in Denton, Texas:
