Book Photo: A Question of Balance.A Question of Balance

by Walter T. Matia

A richly designed volume celebrating the life and work of Walter T. Matia.

“It is about the balance between the time I spend watching animals in the wild and the hours spent in the studio. It is about finding the balance between representing anatomical facts, and seeking out what is truly artistic and beautiful in those gestures and compositions. It is about balancing what I know by ‘seeing’ with what I can imagine in a sculptural rendering of that knowledge.”

“The sculpture in the book chronicles a lifetime of icy mornings, blistered feet, torrid afternoons, chapped hands, great and not so great dogs, flipped canoes, wet sleeping bags, wonderful dinners, and the companionship of understanding and knowledgeable friends.”
