Accardi’s diverse landscape includes references to ancient Roman sculpture, abstract art, and recognizable cartoons. His nod to diverse artists in his body of work gives the impression that within an Accardi collection, a separate world of modern and historical art has been created.

Metis Atash

In her own words, each of Metis Atash’s sculptures is “infused with the energy of the moment in which they were created.” Adorned in thousands of Swarovski crystals, Metis’s pieces are a stunning visual experience. Her body of work includes elephant figures, multicolored Matryoshka dolls, and Buddha-inspired figures.

Inspired by the meditative energy of Bali, each sculpture’s model is molded by hand before being sealed in resin. Both glass and clay sculptures are then intuitively hand-painted. The painted designs range from free-flowing patterns to tributes of artwork from iconic artists like Piet Mondrian. The final step involves meticulously adorning each sculpture with genuine Swarovski crystals. The number of crystals used in each sculpture varies from 1000-500,000, depending on the size and complexity of the work.

Atash’s pieces are meant to be perceived as the mirror of the human soul. They personify life’s duality and the merging of our inner beings with our physical selves. Taking inspiration from Eastern philosophy, Atash’s art focuses on nature, the relationship between humanity and a higher power, health and longevity, as well as action through inaction to produce harmony with the universe.
