NEW EXHIBITION

Christopher Mathie
Seeking Balance
September 1 – October 20

Artist Talk: 3pm | Reception: 4 – 6pm

White Bird Gallery

This new exhibition reflects the search for balance and truth within a commerce-driven world by moving past fear-based decision-making. Washington-state painter Christopher Mathie has developed a high-energy painting style that oscillates between bold abstractions, expressive coastal landscapes and a language of symbolic forms. His emotional canvases are based on intuitive mark making, intimate dialogues and a free flowing thought process that stems from surrendering to trust and letting go from the constraints of fear.

In his new paintings, images of bird spirits, portal shapes and boats navigating uncharted territory act as allegories for a path that is guided by instinct. The artist creates a personal discourse in each canvas that comes from an uninhibited stream of consciousness. Reaching deeper into psychological and emotional states that arise from overcoming hardship, Mathie seeks an experience of purity within the creative realm.

Christopher Mathie is a vibrant Pacific Northwest painter well known for his dynamic abstractions. He has exhibited his work for 26 years, drawing on various interests in philosophy, metaphysics and observations of the natural world. Mathie was nominated for the 2016 James W. Ray Distinguished Artist Award, given by Frye Art Museum / Artist Trust Consortium, his paintings are included in private and corporate collections nationally and internationally.
