Emerging Artist 2013: Matthew Mitros – Acworth, Georgia

 

Mitros’ quirky, organic sculptures work in a very two-dimensional, still-life-painting kind of way. Textural glazes remove the familiarity associated with specific objects, allowing you to rediscover the forms. The visual tension created by the combinations in these structures, whose organic and fabricated elements interact is both strange and engaging.
