About the exhibition

This is the first time Oriel y Bont has hosted a solo exhibition of a Japan based artist. Matthew Fasone is an interdisciplinary artist from New York City who has been living and working in Osaka, Japan since 2006. His arts practice involves making palimpsests through collaging found and collected materials, most notably washi (traditional Japanese paper) and old ledger books. In addition to this he also combines botanical contact prints, textiles and other printmaking techniques into his mixed media artworks. The work celebrates the passage of time, and time’s effect on things, qualities that align with a Japanese aesthetic appreciation of surface patina.
