Resident Artist

(Click above for link)

Matt Flint is an artist who lives and works in the rural mountain town of Lander, Wyoming. His work is in numerous private and public collections and has been widely exhibited. Matt has created the poster art for Frankie, The Gold Standard, and Monsterface, and is currently a full time practicing artist and a full time Professor of Art at Central Wyoming college. As a boy, Matt spent much of his time exploring the heavily wooded acreage around his home in the Midwest. When not working in the studio, Matt now spends his time exploring the rugged terrain of the Wind River Mountians. His continued curiosity and exploration of the natural world is still the primary influence in his art making. Matt’s paintings are about isolation and transformation. The imagery in the work consists of glyphs, semi abstracted plants, animals, and figures that inhabit a “landscape” made up of simple geometric patterns. This primitive geometry serves as a loose framework to organize, join, and simultaneously isolate the various subjects in the paintings. Rich textures and a subtle meditative light quality are created through the process of working and reworking the surface. The tension between the quiet geometry and the active surface complexity evokes a meditative state that floats between the concrete and the temporal.
