Christopher Mathie 

Christopher Mathie is a vibrant Pacific Northwest painter well known for his dynamic abstractions. In his 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.  He seeks an experience of purity within the creative realm. 

He has exhibited 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. Commissions accepted. Shipping will need to be quoted before the order is fulfilled.
