No, because matrix inversion can be done efficiently. Namely, if encryption is multiplication by a matrix $A$, then you can define decryption with $A$ as first computing the inverse of $A$ and then multiplying. An essential property of public-key cryptosystems is that it should not be possible to efficiently derive the (private) decryption key from the ...
