Making the old new again.
Matthew Alverson is an artist who seeks to slow the pace in a hectic world through photography. Matthew brings the lens close to capture the literal nuts and bolts of man-made structures. His artistic insight allows him to capture textures and colors rich in history and easily dismissed by many. Matthew prints mainly on metal, just as much of his subject matter is rusted metal.
Matthew also captures the grandeur of the Blue Ridge Mountains and the Low Country of South Carolina with his landscape photography. These photographs document the visual beauty of the natural world while invoking an emotional connection for his audience.
“Being behind a camera narrows the world and allows the mind to focus on just what is before me. Allowing me to, for a moment, forget about the stresses of the larger world.”
The idea to turn a hobby into a business came along at a time when I needed something to fill a void in my professional life. I have over the years enjoyed meeting so many great people at art shows and getting to share my passion with them. As my primary career has found its way back on the tracks there has been less time for the art show tour and less time for photography trips.
I am putting a lot of my energy into another passion of mine, STEAM education through volunteering at the Boys & Girls Club of Henderson County NC with FIRST Robotics team 1225. As well as supporting my wife’s passion of helping high school students unravel the mysteries and complexities of the college application and selection process.
