(Born 1978, Durango, CO) Nathan Mabry is fast becoming known for creating pieces that combine forms associated with hard-core Minimalist sculpture with the erotic shapes common in pre-Columbian Peruvian ceramics. It may sound gimmicky, but Mabry pulls off this pairing with a light touch and a wry sense of humor, not critiquing either aesthetic as much as playing with—and embracing—them.
Mabry currently lives and works in L.A.
