MM0006 Illuminated Ceramic and Mixed Media Sculpture by Mikel Durlam and Monty J

About

This illuminated sculpture by Mikel Durlam and Monty J is a collaborative piece from their collection that began with their 2017 two-person show at Greenpoint Hill. The slip-cast ceramic moons and cast brass legs are made from originals hand-sculpted by the artists. The moons are finished with gold leaf and illuminated on the interior. The brass legs are adorned with white feathers. The work evokes an otherworldly creature and brings a bit of elegant mystery into any room. Durlam and Monty J create dreamlike sculptural interpretations of the natural world. Their work defies categorization, synthesizing elements of design, visual poetry and surrealism. Durlam’s work presents a modern approach to representational sculpture. Monty J’s otherworldly living sculptures offer a more abstract take. Working together in a communal studio space in Brooklyn, Durlam and Monty J have created an ethereal collection of objects that connect the viewer to the terrestrial world while also fostering dreams of another one, far from home. Edition of 3. Ceramic, cast brass, gold leaf, feathers, and lighting components 13"H x 10"D x 12"W Mikel Durlam (b. Fort Dodge, IA) creates exquisite ceramic works as a synthesis of his love of design, handmade production, and visual poetry. His surreal work presents a contemporary approach to representational sculpture. His work was included in the Greenpoint Hill collection featured in Architectural Digest's 2018 Best of Brooklyn Designs. Monty J. Mattison (b. Detroit, MI) - known simply as Monty J - toils through the night perfecting his exquisite living sculptures. Monty has recently exhibited work at Greenpoint Hill, The Future Perfect and Barneys New York. His work has been featured in T Magazine and was included in the Greenpoint Hill collection noted as the Best in Brooklyn Designs 2018 by Architectural Digest.
