We launched the Mercury Design Studio Gallery today

I love art so much and from time to time will come across an artist’s vision with whom I make a connection. Their work will move me in some way that turns me to a loyal promoter. I decided that I can’t sit still without letting others know about them.

This season Mercury Design Studio is featuring Atlanta Photographer Jerry Maschinot. His work is currently showing at the Ravenswood Art Walk in the Northcenter area. in Chicago. In the Ravenswood corridor at 4001 N. Ravenswood 3rd floor. Maschinot’s current work is from his Auto Series, 11 medium and large-scale prints of car ornaments, truck doors, and detailed auto parts. Each print is highly textural and highlights the rust, blue, green and gray patinas of a weathered junkyard.

“River of Rust”

Maschinot’s early work was as a ceramicist, working with Raku vessels and forms. His Auto Series prints make use of his ceramicist’s eye for three dimensions, and for variations in subtle colors.

He is based in Cave Springs, GA (near Atlanta) and has shown his work in Chicago, Atlanta, Kansas City, Birmingham, Cincinnati and other cities across the U.S.
