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 2D & 3D 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.
