Sculptor Matt Devine believes in simplicity as an antidote to contemporary life. He works both large and small. When he’s not concentrating on a commissioned work for an architectural exterior, he’s creating sculptures in the studio. Some are elemental-looking forms punctuated by beautifully worked apertures. Other have multiple components, like half-circles (“half-moons” is his term) and slender poles. All have elegant patinas.


We were lucky to meet and photograph Matt in his new studio space, complete with a large overhead crane, railroad tracks and a great plan for this old glass factory. The Glashaus is a renovated space turned into artist’s lofts and shared space with business partner and fellow sculptor, Greg Bortherton. Together, they hope to create an artist community in the Logan Barrio of San Diego. Matt is pictures here with his canine buddy, Buddy, in the first days of construction.
