Attila Mata

Artexpo New York 2024

April 4 – 7, 2024

I enjoy experimenting with a wide variety of materials and forms; so far I have used wood, bronze, aluminum, stainless steel, and crystal (acrylic resin), which I sometimes paint. As for my subjects, I am interested in ancient themes such as sexuality, death, the gods, etc. In my work, the human body is reduced to and reorganized as a geometric form and structure. I am also attracted to the extreme; if my theme is a god, it must be, for example, Golem with all of his brutal energy. I find abstract themes exciting too, such as the outer and inner surface of the form, use of color on sculpture, design, the structure and plasticity of material and its effect on form, combining two kinds of materials within the same artwork. As a sculptor, the viewer matters to me. My goal is to capture their attention and to inspire thought. My audience takes part in the creation of an artwork by using their imagination, and without them, my sculptures do not exist.
