Italian born artist Matteo Pugliese created these stunning sculptures. Titled Extra Moenia, the series has run through several variations since 1998. Extra Moenia means is a Latin phrase that means outside the walls or outside the walls of the city.
Portland based artist Meredith Dittmar works primarily with polymer clay and wire to create intricate sculpted 3D scenes, depicting often otherworldly landscapes.
Dittmar’s choice of material complements the strange fantastical theme of her work with subtle, delicate tones from the soft application of the clay.
Dittmar’s work extends far beyond her fine art sculptures, where she has seen a successful career mount, with recent projects for Convers, Freya Lingerie and FiftyFiveDSL.
