At last a new painting for my First To See Friends. After a busy summer I carved out a little studio time before a bit of travel with Carol to celebrate our 40th anniversary. I’ll do my best to get back to work again soon! Arrivederci for now. Jeff
Standing still or still standing? Actually, both. We all need and have times when we pause long enough to drink in the peace of a moment. Inspiration struck as I was climbing back up the path on an evening with just enough smoke in the air to bath the cool coastal air below in warmth. Our pacific coast trees have so much character and often inspire me creativity. Thinking about the force required to snap a tree limb helps me appreciate what they endure living on the edge like they do. Their brokenness is what gives them character.

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.
We appreciate your interest in Christopher Mathie’s paintings!
