A selection of several wall mounted works and one free standing construction of resin and wood, Wanderlust explores the tension created visually through the fusion of organic and machined forms. The title refers to Seattle sculptor’s Matthew Mitros’ energized surfaces which consist of trajectories of resin traveling in unexpected directions from the confines of a wood framework (itself in various stages of deconstruction). Looking at the assembly of his work, the viewer is subliminally attuned to the image of monochromatic canvases engulfed in a colossal explosion. Embodied in resin drips, the organic component of the works are determined by nature, formed by the force of gravity, while the wood structures represent the machined, or fabricated, forms representing the product of man’s intent.
