FRESH Artist Profiles: Mimi Logothetis

FRESH Feature

Find out more about Mimi Logothetis, one of 27 artists juried into the FRESH exhibition at Artspace.

 

I work in porcelain, because of its starkness, purity, strength and translucence, all depending on its manipulation. I use symbolic images and decorate the wet clay with transfers that I assemble and layer in order to create a story, a joke or a surreal visual landscape. The hand built work is constructed to show process: seams, glue, rivets, etc. or to resemble paper, speaking to the nature of preciousness and permanence vs. fragility and disposability.

Fun Fact!

My vinyl collection is stuck in the 70’s and 80’s, but I am not, or maybe I am. I dislike technology, I do not have a smart phone, I collect bones and live off-grid with solar electricity. If I am not working, I am gardening. I love the ocean.
