Nathan Mabry (b. 1978, Durango, Colorado) is a Los Angeles, California-based artist with an acclaimed body of work that includes primarily sculpture and work on paper. Mabry was formally trained as a ceramicist and his large-scale sculptures are cast from clay models and found objects. Though the scale of Mabry’s work is often monumental, the intimacy of the artist’s hand is always present. Mabry draws inspiration from a variety of sources including archaeology, Dadaism, surrealism and minimalism.
His work has most recently included reproductions of Native American, pre-Columbian and African art totems that he places on bases derived from minimalist sculpture.
