Painter by nature and printmaker by trade, Jeffco resident Matt Christie has contributed to the art scene both as an artist and educator over the past 40 years. Christie mixes a dynamic array of visual references combined with imagination, to create several striking bodies of work.
Christie roots his work in childhood experiences of nature, capturing the profound impact fields, forests, streams, and ponds have had on him since a young age. The landscape is a form that connects inner and outer nature in Christie’s paintings, serving as a form of self-portraiture. Opposing themes of death and growth, threat and safety, loneliness, and relationships are expressively explored.
Christie is represented by Walker Fine Art in Denver, CO.
