While in Miami for the art fairs we ran into Hyland Mather (aka X-O), who left one of his unique lost objects installations in my hometown of Philly this past summer.
The cool part about meeting up with your artists friends during Basel Week (besides the obvious catching up) is getting a chance to see their work in a different environment. During this time of the year – when art is running rampant throughout Miami, the architecture firm of Shulman and Associate’s, gives the outside walls of their Design District office space over to an artist for interpretation.
Hyland was this year’s Artist-in-Residence, so to speak. He rocked this amazing lost objects install (one of my favorites to-date). Everything you see here is made of found, recycled objects, which he gathers while roaming the streets and then transforms them into these striking, geometric assemblages.
Can’t wait see more of these popping up in Philly (that’s my ‘not subtle’ hint Hyland).
