About the Artist

The paintings of Nathaniel Mather with their rich textures and rough-edged patches of color evoke early 19th century primitive art, and yet rich symbolic allusiveness and playfulness of spirit give his work a sophistication and poise that are emphatically contemporary. Born and raised in California, Nathaniel received his education from, California Institue of Art and Art center College of Design. Nathaniel's artwork has found a large audience with his work collected through the world. With multiple galleries representing his artwork and hundreds of fine art images available through art publishers Nathaniel connects with the viewer in a wonderful spirit.
Nathaniel explains his creative process.
"My work was influenced in the early stages of my painting career by the design genius of Motherwell and the color and textures of Klee. As I developed my own style and voice I started to combine several; mediums including acrylic, oil pastel, paper, and ink.
I start each painting with color, line, and texture and allow the markings to follow their own story, rearranging, adding, and subtracting, layer by layer. The process mirrors how I experience life, bit by bit, day by day adding up to something I could not have imagined in the beginning of the process."
