MXC Design + Art moved from the Hollywood Hills, California to Bainbridge Island near Seattle Washington in 2009.
Matthew’s design work focuses on a “warm modernism”- a fusion of clean lines and Asian influences with an emphasis
on natural materials, finely detailed and crafted.
Matthew X. Curry studied at the Pratt Institute School of Architecture in New York. His architectural training informs all areas
of his multi-faceted career including interior and furniture design, as well as fine art drawings and sculpture.
Prior to forming MXC Design in 1998, Matthew worked at Sony Pictures Entertainment and Orsini Design Associates in both
NYC and later in Los Angeles as VP of Design.
During an invaluable year living in Prague, Matthew focused upon his fine art.
He self-published his first book of work and co-hosted a USC seminar on International Land Use with Professor George Lefcoe.
Matthew has had the good fortune to practice in diverse arenas including yacht interiors, legal/investment firms, celebrity offices,
screening rooms, restaurants and night clubs. His residential projects have ranged from 150 to 26,000 square feet.
Matthew and his work have appeared in several periodicals, The Bainbridge Island Museum of Art, galleries on both coasts,
TV/Film with a feature on HGTV’s “Generation Renovation” plus several HBO programs.
As of 2015, Matthew is a full member of the NW Woodworker's Gallery, Seattle.
In 2018 representation from 3 more wonderful galleries were contracted:
My drawings and sculptural work are meant to evoke a sort of 4th dimension connecting emotive, physical, spiritual and intellectual worlds perhaps yet unknown but perceived through the medium of art and imagination. My art is inspired by nature, malleable time, the sciences, geometry, laws of physics, and a healthy dose of jazz, fused with the joy of drawing and hand crafting - a heady place to reside and dream.
The “Unstill Life” drawings suggest suspended moments in an illusory and elusive process of change, a passage of physical and metaphysical generation or degeneration.
The sculptures, furniture and exotic wood boxes combine all aspects of my ideas and career. Each piece is an exploration and experiment in technique, idea, craft and material. Exotic woods from around the world are themselves the inspiration, ranging from subtle to striking.
