Pete Mattila

  Currently based in lutruwita/Tasmania, Australia. My work celebrates complex histories, in art, craft, and design as well as in industrial expression. While simultaneously identifying the practice and understanding of craft in terms of social consciousness, the expression of an ethical life through the immediate relationship between hand and mind, and the interrelationship between the physical world and intention. The material processes used to imply an encapsulated visual dialogue of energy and motion. Articulating movement through the use of steel on steel, with a constant observation of the visual and structural vocabulary specific to metalworking process.
