Red Dot Miami 2019
December 4 – December 8, 2019
Reception: Wednesday, December 4, 2019 6-8 PM

Through his energetic sculptures, Attila Mata conjures a world of power, agency, and dynamism within geometric structure and variations in media. His oeuvre encompasses a vast array of materials, including but not limited to wood, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, and acrylic resin. Inspired by ancient themes such as sexuality, death, and primal deities, Mata’s sculptures appear to writhe and change as the viewer circumambulates each work.

Each sculpture commands singular authority, often reducing the female form nearly to abstraction while alternating between stainless steel and bronze throughout the piece. Salient angles, clean lines, and geometric forms twist and curl around each other in a nearly austere manner. Mata’s women are unapologetic, auspicious, and emanate sovereignty and agency from his audience. While the structure of some works appear somewhat fragmented, others demonstrate an organic fluidity of motion and negative space. The artist currently resides in Hungary.
