Prior to his death Matthew was working on an exhibition. He insisted that he would be conspicuous by his absence. He had a knack of being right.
In August 2009 Matthew's partner put on the posthumous exhibition 'OF GODS AND MONSTERS'.
In 2012 the National Portrait Gallery acquired several of Matthew's portraits.
