“1200 Degrees", is an original abstract sculpture made from aluminum and powder coat paint. The title refers to the melting point for aluminum.
Matt Devine is a self-taught sculptor working with steel, stainless steel, and aluminum. Born and raised in New England, Devine moved to California in 1995, where he learned to weld and fabricate metal, while working alongside his father.
The contrasts of nature and industry, light and shadow, chaos and order, are themes found throughout Devine’s body of work. Pared-down organic shapes are formed from solid materials and welded together in harmonious accord, often allowing the metal to appear as light as paper. This sculpture is for sale for $45,000.
