Curt Mattson

Joy, excitement, and intensity mark Curt Mattson’s passion for life and sculpture.  His work evokes these emotions and more.  It is his love of the horse and horsemanship that drives him. Movement, texture, mass, and negative space bring each piece to life.  His work is unique in approach and execution. His pieces are complimented by so many collectors when they say, “You work is so alive!”  These pieces become a focal point in any environment.  And no wonder, the sculptor brings award-winning excellence to his work.

His dynamic works of art have garnered many awards.  Among these are:  National Sculpture Society’s Elliott Gantz Award; Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art’s Quest For The West Cyrus Dalin Award; Phippen Museum’s Western Art Show & Sale, Best of Show, Allied Artists of America Silver Medal for Sculpture, and innumerable others .

Curt researches thoroughly before starting a new work.  He begins creating only when he is completely familiar with the subject.  Whether contemporary or historic, he intimately understands the nuances of his subjects.  Beyond that, his artistic training assures that his work is more than mere depictions.  These compositional elements come together to create artistic excellence rarely found in sculpture. 

Curt has established low edition sizes for each one of his sculptures.   On average no more than twenty pieces are available of each of his works.  This low edition size makes it a rare privilege to own a Curt Mattson sculpture. In his work you can be sure you are looking at the true West.
