"The idea came first and then I tried to use the materials I already had at the studio:  wires, bolts and aqua resin.  I got the idea by looking at how buildings are made.  There's a contrast but you need to get close to see that the polished metal wire is shining through the matte resin that has been poured over." - Mauricio Morillas

About Mauricio Morillas

"I am influenced both by the cultural richness of my hometown of Mexico City as well as the urban landscapes of New York City where I now create most of my art.  As a mixed media artist, I experiment with technique and use diverse materials such as wood, metal, acrylic, paper, glass and resin.  I focus on creating subtle textures and blurring the boundaries between two- and three-dimensional perspectives so that the viewer's eye sees something new at every level and on every inch of the piece. Working in mixed media is a constant learning experience, an exploration to discover how unlikely things will react to each other.  I build layers, transform and repurpose my materials, and create shadows and indentations until a composition is complete.  I want each piece to be a unique vision preserving detail and contrasts within an overall minimalist aesthetic."
