Submerge yourself within utopian and dystopian landscapes, encounter the robots as they experience the best of human emotions: wonder, kindness, empathy, friendship, and love.
Rob Dickins CBE, curator of the exhibition, said: "What I love about Matt's art is that it works on at least two levels, as on the face of it, there are likeable junkyard creations but when you look deeper, there is almost always other leaves which comment on the human condition and the environment, sometimes in the polluted landscapes of cities and sometimes in the calm and thoughtful beauty of the countryside. The cryptically tilted pieces usually giving the viewer and idea...it is art that repays spending time with each picture. My advice is...look for clues."
‘A Sense of Wonder‘ is gathered together from the digital paintbrush of Matt Dixon, who created his first robot character as part of the series Transmissions in 2006. He has been exploring this preternatural world ever since, including the design of the O2 robot mascot Bubl.
