Comments on the 4731 opening:
"I've heard so much about
the rock formations, but you really have to see them in person to appreciate the
talent that goes into constructing them. Matthew is an artist in every sense of the word, and his
creations are truly unique."
"I was struck by the number of sculptures that had
human characteristics, reminiscent of Alberto Giacometti, Henry Moore and
others. I had to keep reminding myself that Matthew did this from chunks of
broken sidewalk that were randomly collected and not until he carefully balanced
them atop one another--without any kind of mortar or glue--did they transform
into stone people."
"Matthew Davis defies gravity--and description. His
stone sculptures are simultaneously delicate and powerful, fragile and enduring;
they touch the past and they celebrate the future."
