Matthew Courtney’s sculpture humorously mixes his love of sports and popular culture with a deep knowledge of the history of art and ceramics. He applies his training as an industrial designer to a playfully transgressive approach to the medium of clay. His current sculpture is heavily influenced by three artist residencies in Lanzhou China, where Matthew was invited to explore the material and visual culture of Gansu province. Learn more.
This work was completed during the artist’s CFEVA Visual Artist Fellowship, a two-year incubation program that is integral to CFEVA’s commitment to fostering artistic excellence and furthering its mission to help visual artists build sustainable careers. Artists are selected for this program annually by an independent Board of Artistic Advisors based on the merit of their artwork, demonstrated ability to reach stated goals, and a clear vision for the next level in their professional practice.
