Karl Mattson

Rolla, BC

This iron city, landscape, dimension, is another one of Mattson's testimonies to the sometimes-bleak vision of mankind's complacent march into a future of uncertainness.


Living in South Peace Country in Northern BC, Karl Mattson was raised on the banks of the creek as a fifth-generation farmer. A self-taught multi-media artist, Karl's life has been fuelled by his compulsion to create and speak through art, which has always played a central role in his life. Karl's current explorations include large metal sculpture, and in particular, utilizing scavenged scraps and materials that surround his farm and community.
