Dale Mathis – Sculptor (American, 1972 – Present) SELF TAUGHT Sculptor Dale Mathis engages and captivates the viewer’s artistic sensibilities with the soft whirring of hand made gears and pistons awash in cool neon, while a commanding eye stares straight through you, and, yes … those are sculpted bullet holes in the frame. A dreamscape vision sculpted into 3D reality. Surrealism meets mechanicalism - a merging of The Dream & the Machine This is the world of Dale Mathis His art work possesses that rarest of artistic elements – true originality. Dale Mathis’ art works are primarily mixed media, high relief wall sculptures that challenge, and defy ready classification. The Art works are commanding, not just artistically, but physically. A “typical” Mathis Art work is mechanical, with hand carved moving gears, neon lit, sculpted, and often near 4 feet or more in 2 dimensions, and a foot deep. Weighing 80lbs or more. Art imitates life, or in this case the artist.
