Matt Devine is an exceptional metal sculptor and self-taught artist. Devine began honing his metal fabrication skills in 1995 and transitioned to full-time sculpting in 2001. His sculptures are known for their clean and harmonizing aesthetic, which often redefine gravity. Devine’s artwork is seamless and evokes weightlessness, yet is fabricated using heavy metals such as steel, aluminum and bronze. The repetition of form, placement and minimalistic patterns create a sense of balance and harmony in his work.
Devine’s sculpture is currently on display at prominent fine art galleries across the United States. His creations can also be seen in public entities and private collections in locations ranging from Los Angeles to New York, Australia to Hong Kong. Some prominent collections include the Greenfield Village at Otay Mesa, Jonathan Segal’s Union Building, numerous Bartell Hotel locations, and in the private collections of Terry and Janet Kafka and Lew and Marnie Klein.
Devine was born in Salem, Massachusetts. He currently works and resides in San Diego, California with his wife, Morgan and their daughter, Mollie.
"The search for harmony and balance is the driving force behind my work. The use of systematic repetition, intentional minimalism and controlled multiplicity are themes through which to quell inner struggle. Drawn to the strength, subtle beauty and endurance of steel, bronze and aluminum, I welcome error in my process, as it is a constant reminder of the trials in life and as an artist."
