Artist bio

Born in 1961, Vincent Mattina received his BFA in Illustration from Columbus College of Art and Design in 1987. Mattina’s work combines his own photography, digital collage, and assemblage techniques to create elaborate, mixed media images focusing on spiritual, environmental & technology issues. One of the main themes in his work is climate change, crafting pieces that reveal a post-apocalyptic vision of a future that may or may not be too distant. Mattina is also multidisciplinary artist who works in digital, mixed media, photography and assemblage art. His richly detailed work transports you to an alternate reality where science, nature and spirituality evolve. His distinctive personal style emanates a surreal and mysterious quality that evokes an atmosphere from another realm. Mattina’s artwork has been shown in galleries across the country, including the Los Angeles Center for Digital Art, San Diego Art Institute, the Brand Library and Art Center, Southampton Art Center and locally at Springville Museum of Art in Utah. His work has been featured in numerous publications such as Emboss, Visual Artistry, and Art Ascent magazine. His artwork is included in numerous private art collections throughout the U.S. as well as being collected internationally.

Artist Statement

At the time this image was made my wife and I had both lost our jobs within the same week. We were both going through a crisis and called upon our faith to weather the coming storm. God came and opened a door for us to enter when all others closed. We ended up in another state and new careers that give us more fulfillment and a connections to our community. We are Blessed!

How it fits into contest

The Sword of the Spirit (which is the word of God) is represented by the sword in her right hand and Jesus Christ is symbolized by the crown of thorns in her left hand. The water spout represents the devil's schemes and the powers of this dark world.


My wife, Lynn Mattina, was the model.
