This week, New York City designer, Matthew Fisher launches his very first collection of art objects. Matthew’s practice is marked by a fascination with objects and their relationships with people. Deep material manipulation and formal research are at the foundation of his creative process. His work ranges from unique art objects to editioned productions each piece celebrating the union between heritage, natural materials, and refined craftsmanship.
Prompted by the anthropological study of objects, Matthew’s work conveys an emotional nostalgia through the quiet detailing of material and form. His portfolio is realized through historically revered natural materials like marble, alabaster, granite, and onyx. Other traditional crafts such as glass working and wood turning are present in his work as limited material explorations.
"It's a conscious effort to work in stone, a material that existed long before any form of us. The sculpting in my collection is meant to show reverence to the material and cement the work in no one time. I like to think of the collection as a liminal bridge for that reason - to connect the before to a society so driven by what's next." - Matthew Fisher
