Matthew Bateson

Matthew Bateson is a self taught artist. His landscapes are based on his dreams, in which light and terrain reflect psychological states, often bordering on nightmares and feelings of anxiety.

The pictures are created early in the morning, upon awaking. This is the time when dreams are best remembered, so his experiences can be precipitated in paint. The pictures are begun with abstract colour until spectral contours emerge almost alchemically from the materiality of the paint.
