Christopher Mathie’s new collection of paintings offers a strong sentiment about creating artwork during quarantine. In his emotional abstractions, Mathie draws on the energy of the coastal region, revealing an inner strength and connection to the powerful forces of the ocean while being secluded at his home studio and property.
The exhibit runs May 15-June 28. View the online show here: http://www.whitebirdgallery.com/mathie/index2020.html
"I intentionally use art to transform feelings and emotions,” Mathie said. “When something causes me anxiety, I try to play it out on the canvas. I often create chaos with paint first and then find ways to resolve the conflict right before my eyes. It reminds me that things can and do get better. Resolution is possible. It also reminds me that it's not always easy or fast."
White Bird Gallery hopes you enjoy the online presentation of Mathie’s Spring Exhibition.
