Matthew Bateson experiences something of a haunting during the process of painting. He starts the works in a very open, abstract and exploratory way – just pushing the paint around with his brush on the canvas, allowing forms to evolve and interact and letting different colours resonate and bleed into one another. There is no pre-planning or guiding under-drawing to map his terrain.
At some point, the abstract painterly process begins to take its own pictorial rhythms and specific qualities of light, atmosphere and emotional tone begin to pervade the spaces. With each work, accidental marks and a strata of residual pigment establish a ground. Spectral contours of a particular landscape or figurative form emerge almost alchemically from within the materiality of the paint.

“Installation and sculpture are at the core of my practice and each site brings new challenges and possibilities. The shed at the end of the Anna Lovely Gallery garden was built alongside the original Pharmacy and medicinal garden. Many of my installations incorporate acrylic mirror into a site to explore the boundary at which fragments of real space can be subtly shifted into an illusionary space; something that appears solid can be transformed into a fragile and unstable state; the moment when what we accept as true slips away and unsettles us.
Saturday 18 September 7-9pm
