Glass artist Matthew Curtis finds inspiration in organic forms.
Curtis on his work:
The forms I am working with are loosely reminiscent of enlarged organic structures whilst also influenced by minimalist architecture. On one hand derivative of the carapace or thorax of a beetle, or of the microscopic structures of diatoms, on the other, an exploration of architectural spaces and forms. With some of the works my intention is that these structures invite the viewer to contemplate distant experiences of discovery, such as a childhood experience, a moment of wonder at the complexity of the natural world. In other works, it is the interplay with forms and the dynamic interrelationships of intersecting planes that informs the design and assemblage of these large glass structures.
