Gnomes and Phigments: the Art of Matt Dutton

Sep 12, 2012

You've heard about things that go bump at the night, but what are those things? Artist Matt Dutton tries to answer that question.

Matt Dutton's artwork usually depicts anthropomorphic creatures with animal bodies and human heads. His sculptures are a part of Dutton's narrative-mythology, which he called Phigments. If you've never seen any of his Phigments, you may have seen some of his other creations since he works at one of Chattanooga's most recognized attractions. Matt Dutton is also the art specialist for Rock City.
