'A Modern Romance'

01/05/12

20-21 Arts Centre, Scunthorpe, UK. 3 March - 19 May 2012.

Group exhibition featuring Paul Collinson, Matthew Conduit, Esther Johnson, Salvatore Fiorello, Steve Hawley, Helen Saunders, Michael Szpakowski, Sean Williams, Jonathan Wilkinson.

Matthew Conduit’s photographs are meticulous large scale studies of spaces on the edges of the city. Intricate, elegant and immaculately executed, they depict birch, hawthorn, bramble and buckthorn, excluded from any sense of landscape, pictorially removed from horizon and sky.

Whilst the images appear to represent the forces of 'pure nature', they are all in fact made within dormant areas on the urban borderline that have been altered, used and re-used in varying ways by man over centuries, and are in fact post industrial landscapes in one form or another.

occursus Exhibition

15/03/12

Matthew's Chora work is featured in the new occursus exhibition at DLA Piper, Sheffield.

Matthew Conduit’s imposing images have a quality of permanence and of powerful materiality. Whether the lens captures the immemorial stone of Wirksworth’ impressive quarries or the profuse wildlife of untamed woodlands in a more familiar England, Conduit translates the overwhelming visible stimuli that surround us, through a photographic production that is both realistic and intensely conceptual. Whereas the horizontal composition of the images asserts the stability and compactness of the real, the acute awareness of colours, lines and variations within the frame realise an enticingly sensuous abstraction. Therefore, Conduit’s approach to specifically human imprints is more inclusive than actually dominant. In the artist’s generous and encompassing vision of the physical density that surrounds us, the presence of human beings is made manifest only through the account of disseminated traces and Time-swept relics, bold and monumental yet fragile as the intricate flora that bursts from the mesmerizing tableaux of his Chora series.
