Alumni Notes: MXC in the Graphite World

Matthew Curry “MXC in the Graphite World” Opens at Northwest Fine Woodworking Gallery Thursday April 7th, 2011

Northwest Fine Woodworking proudly presents the fine art of Matthew Curry.   Matthew Curry’s detailed drawings in graphite and charcoal invite us to explore between the lines and experience other dimensions in fragments within the artist’s compositional cohesion. 
“My drawings are meant to evoke a sort of 4th dimension connecting the physical, spiritual and intellectual worlds.  My art is inspired by nature, malleable time, the sciences, geometry, laws of physics, and a healthy dose of jazz, fused with the joy of creating - a heady place to reside and dream.”
Matthew X. Curry studied at the Pratt Institute School of Architecture in New York.  His architectural training informs all areas of his multi-faceted career including interior and furniture design, as well as fine art drawings, woodworking and sculpture.  Prior to forming MXC Design in 1998, Matthew worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment and Orsini Design Associates in both NYC and later in Los Angeles.
Northwest Fine Woodworking is a cooperative gallery owned by Northwest-based studio furniture artists. Serving a national clientele this local cooperative opened its doors in 1980 and features the finest artisan woodwork available today.  For more information contact Northwest Fine Woodworking Gallery at 206-625-0542 or www.nwfinewoodworking.com.
