Mattye Hamilton

Mattye Hamilton is a painter and print-maker living in Baltimore, MD. She received her Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) in painting from The Maryland Institute College of Art in 1994.

When Mattye paints, she is illustrating the way in which she is connected to her environment. She is drawn to the patterns, colors and figures that she sees in daily life, which she then uses to populate a world of her own.

“I feel the energy from each individual piece and imagine the story it tells. I want my surfaces to radiate light and tease emotion. I become lost in the layers of paint and begin to formulate a story. Texture, color and motion are all important elements of my work that complete the experience.”

Mattye uses luscious, unexpected combinations of color, pattern, and line, infusing her work with equal measures of nature and style. Her work encompasses figures, still lives, and abstraction inspired by nature. In her work, Hamilton seeks to portray a quiet, meditative quality, encouraging the viewer to look inward.

Mattye’s work has been exhibited at Fleckenstein Gallery, The Creative Alliance, Hamilton Gallery, and Columbia Center for the Arts. Her works have also been published in several magazines, including Shape Magazine, MS, and Baltimore Magazine.
