About Exhibition:
I alighted from the plane in Kunming on 11 October.
When we descended to Kunming it was dark… First I saw rivers and hills in monochrome outlines, then bridges and buildings, then roads and cars. I saw two bonfires burning on the edge of a field.

I accidentally alighted on a theme and a fascination.
What I saw [projected on paper through a small hole in the roof] was an upside-down  image of the sky and the factory roof. My studio is a camera obscura.

My art came alight with colours.
I did an abstract sketch in my sketchbook with my various acrylics – then dragged the paint about with some toothpicks.[/lang_en]

[lang_zh]工作进程[/lang_zh][lang_en]Work in Process[/lang_en]




Matt Dalby 花了一段时间收集这些瓶瓶罐罐,处理干净后装入不同的东西。 瓶子里的东西五花八门,比如一只死蟑螂、一张护照照片、一只橡胶手套,还有一瓶艺术家自制的橘子酱。 一共有42个玻璃容器。

布面丙烯画 大多数都是画在之前的图像上 正方形画板上用的原料是本地土壤调成的泥浆 较大一点的风景画式样的画板上是用丙烯画的一些网格,有些凸起的网格线条仍然看得出来。 有框的画布上用的是泥浆和丙烯。原来还有玻璃嵌在里面,表面也被刀划过,画之前我尽可能地做了一些修补。[/lang_zh]

[lang_en]Pictures from the exhibition

The glass jars and bottles were gathered over a period of time and filled as they became available. Their contents include a cockroach, a passport photo, and a rubber glove. The marmalade in a bottle was made by the artist. There are 42 glass containers.

The paintings are acrylic on canvas or canvas board. Most are painted over previous images. The square boards were painted with liquid mud from the local soil. The larger landscape-format boards (next to the square boards) were blank except for grids painted in acrylic. On some the grids are still visible as raised lines. The stretched canvases were painted with mud and acrylic, had glass embedded, and were slashed with a craft knife. Before I repainted them I repaired the cuts as far as I could. [/lang_en]
