Christopher Mathie

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 created from trust and the letting go of fear.   His works display the raw, rugged and emotional appeal and natural beauty of the Pacific Northwest. 

 

In his new paintings, images of abstracted flowers, contemplative shorebirds, rugged seascapes and boats navigating uncharted territory act as allegories for a path 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. He draws on various interests in philosophy, metaphysics and observations of the natural world.  

 

Mathie earned his art degree from the University of Puget Sound in 1994, and has exhibited professionally for 28 years.  He has worked with over eighty fine art galleries and with Trammell-Gagne’ at the Seattle Design Center.  He has done numerous custom projects working with sought after interior designers.  Mathie was nominated for the 2016 James W. Ray Distinguished Artist Award, given by Frye Art Museum / Artist Trust Consortium.  His work has also become a favorite at the Museum of Northwest Art annual gala. His paintings are included in private and corporate collections nationally and internationally.
