Resin casting

I plan to set up a table worth of materials and tools that will be used to demonstrate a type of mold making and casting. There will also be opportunities to allow guests to cast their own objects and then combine them to make interesting art objects

Matthew Dutton

Matthew Dutton was born in Winter Park Florida and now resides in Chattanooga Tennessee. He is a graduate from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga majoring in BFA 3D Sculpture. He currently lives and works in Chattanooga TN. ​ Matthew Dutton is a multidisciplinary artist whose works employ a hybrid of visual symbols and found objects to create a feral aesthetic through economy of intervention which shares affinities with outsider art, art brut, and neuvre invention - a category of art Jean Dubuffet rationalized as "..of comparable power and inventiveness to Art Brut, but their greater contact with normal society and the awareness they had of their art works precluded their inclusion within his strict Art Brut category.” ​ His personal artwork includes both painting and sculptural techniques. Currently, Matthew is working on a grouping of interesting sculptural creatures that embody a simultaneous sense of attraction and repulsion. These sculptures are intended to conjure emotions playing on morbid curiosity and uncanny experiences. The animal – human hybrid ‘Phigments’ are dreamlike creatures that inhabit domestic vignettes and are often presented interacting in juxtaposition with familiar objects one might find in their own home.
