I have been collecting vintage Mexican metalwork of the 1940s-70s and other modernist decorative arts for over twenty years. As an artist, art history aficianado, and member of an antique collecting and dealing family, I have great respect for artisans and craftspeople from all cultures, but I've always been captivated by the passion and strong design inherent in indigenous art and Mexican art in particular.

I'm also a sculptor, working in handmade paper in both Western and Eastern (Nagashizuki) techniques combined with other media.My work is informed by my daily practice of transcendental meditation as well as my love of modernist art and craft.If you'd like to see some examples, visit my website, www.kimmatthewsart.com.
