About

Large, freestanding sculpture by Matt Devine. Bold and biomorphic, a x b #14 is made from aluminum coated with Powdercoat paint and set on a concrete base. Comprised of repeatedly stacked circles, this sculpture can also be placed indoors and outdoors. Matt Devine is a self-taught sculptor working with steel, aluminum and bronze. Born and raised in Salem, Massachusetts in 1975, Devine moved to San Diego in 1995 where he learned how to weld and fabricate metal with his father while working at the La Jolla Playhouse. He moved on to work at various fabrication studios often working with designers and architects, eventually creating his own designs. Functional pieces gave way to non-representational sculptures. The contrasts of nature and industry, light and shadow, chaos and order are themes found throughout Devine’s body of work. Pared-down organic shapes are formed out of sheet metal and welded together in harmonious patterns making the heavy metal appear as light as paper. These contrasts, plus the relationships of patterns and boundaries, address Devine’s desire to contain chaos and push out the discord of an information-saturated culture. Even the process of welding has become a retreat from cultural noise.
