Matt Dixon does not recall where the idea to paint these robots came from but since the first that he painted, back in 2006, he has been fascinated by them and the world they inhabit. There’s something very restful about losing himself in these paintings. They’re rarely planned. When he is in the mood, he just sits down and they just seem to happen. That’s partly why he named his first book collecting this artwork ‘Transmissions’ as the images ometimes feel as if they’ve been transmitted into his brain from somewhere else!
