Mahlstedt Gallery is pleased to present "Surface Tension", a two-person exhibition featuring artwork by Ellie Winberg and Mauricio Morillas.
Morillas and Winberg’s minimal surfaces incorporate tension-packed texture, bringing viewers to a place outside the literal subject matter. Their vast body of work represents Zen-like influences and serene approaches to process. Emphasis is placed on purity, and techniques involving pouring, mixing, dying, layering, mounting and transforming materials manifests into sculptural archetypes.
This duality of styles incorporates copper, Japanese handmade paper, and glass, creating a contrast between a soft material and something that is hard and cold. Imperfect tears and undulating overlays create ever-changing shadows yielding uncanny resemblance in styles between the two artists.
