“I intentionally use art to transform feelings and emotions,” says Mathie. “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.”
The White Bird Gallery presents a spring virtual exhibition by Christopher Mathie, available for viewing until June 28. Christopher’s new collection of paintings offer 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.
Mathie is a very prolific artist, and the White Bird Gallery offers an opportunity to see all of his newest paintings during this time while so many of us are staying at home. Mathie’s newest paintings can be viewed online at www.whitebirdgallery.com
