Morphing The Human Form

Jeremy Mayer and Joel Urruty, offer radically different takes on the human form. Mayer's work is made out of 100s or 1000s of pieces built from a strict palette of typewriter parts. He eschews glue, welding and wire relying solely on nuts, screws, pins, and springs to assemble his sculptures. Urruty, on the other hand, uses more traditional materials for his modern minimalist sculptures employing wood, bronze, and stone to create his work. 

Jeremy Mayer and Joel Urruty, offer different takes on the human form. Mayer's work is made out of 100s or 1000s of pieces built from a strict palette of typewriter parts. He eschews glue, welding and wire relying solely on nuts, screws, pins, and springs to assemble his sculptures. Urruty, on the other hand, uses more traditional materials for his modern minimalist sculptures employing wood, bronze, and stone to create his work.

Mayer, when questioned about his approach,  says, "I've come to realize that the work itself is the statement. I hope that in viewing my work that people will consider the process and practice first, then imagine why it is relevant to our time."

Urruty is fascinated by form, line, and space, and seeks to "create abstract sculptures that are visually appealing and evoke emotion."

Mayer and Urruty work with different tools, materials, and end goals in mind. Yet, what we perceive as the observer is something that speaks to the nature of being human as both artists produce work that resonates as abstract representations of ourselves.

Jeremy Mayer is a California based sculptor. Most of his work is done on commission.  His sculptures have been displayed at the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Salon Des Indomptables in Paris, the Nevada Museum of Art in Reno, among others. Joël Urruty resides in Western North Carolina. His work can be found in the permanent collections of the Boston Museum of Art, Asheville Museum of Art and the Honolulu Museum of Art.
