Matthew Shlian has developed an original language at the crossroads of art and science. Trained in ceramics he does not claim any affiliation, considering his work on the fringe of any artistic movement. He quickly became interested in digital printing and paper, which he appreciated the delicacy and immediacy. He creates his art with researchers from the University of Michigan.
About the artist
Matthew Shlian Suspended between art and science, Matthew Shlian connects the pure abstraction with the tactile and visual worlds, guided by wonder, in the continued pursuit of forms and discovery. His kinetic sculptural forms are inspired by organic material and iterative patterns, each piece mapped out digitally, and then folded and assembled by hand. The artist's impulses cross the purely aesthetic limits and become a tool to analyze and understand the structures at the base of the world.
