At Fine Art Shippers, we often visit remarkable places when doing our regular cross-country art shuttles. For example, recently, our team of professional art handlers had a chance to walk through the halls of Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport where we were pleasantly surprised to see a series of amazing sculptures by the highly talented artist Mary Engel.
Amazing Sculptures by Mary Engel at the Atlanta Airport
Mary Engel is a mixed-media artist who creates mind-blowing sculptures, using family heirlooms and various sentimental items, such as wristwatches, jewels, keys, coins, grandmother’s button collection, porcelain figures, and dice. All the pieces are meticulously picked by the master and then transformed into sophisticated animal sculptures. From crocodiles to elephants, the artist tries to build a bridge between instinctual and rational words with the help of her art.
Mary Engel’s series of amazing sculptures at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport is presented by Marcia Wood Gallery. Based in Miami, this art gallery has long been home to innovative ideas revolutionizing life around us. Animal sculptures are yet another vital message that Mary Engel and Marcia Wood Gallery want to convey to the public. In some of these works, the artist used bullet cases to recreate the images of endangered species. By this, she brings up a crucial topic of cruelty to animals, which is a pretty common environmental and social issue nowadays.
What we saw at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport was an unrivaled experience for our whole team. We believe that it is important to showcase more of such art publicly since it promotes healthy and useful ideas for our society.
Fine Art Shippers wants to thank Mary Engel for her thought-provoking and truly amazing sculptures and the Atlanta Airport and Marcia Wood Gallery for displaying such stunning works.
