Matt’s sculptural work focuses on expressing natural forces and motion, most often with linear form. Capturing the feeling of growth and change with transformation and repetition is a common theme, along with the layering of elements in nature. The work is primarily abstract, but commissioned work often responds to location and conceptual influences, allowing the viewer to interpret the piece based on context and personal experience. Three-dimensional sculpture should evoke thought, and Matt focuses on bringing the energy of natural forces into the artwork to achieve that goal. Expressing these patterns in life is an essential element of the process.
