Sculpture | Mixed Media
Mirto Golino is an eclectic maker who travels back and forth between multiple mediums and crafts, merging techniques to create very personal and unique pieces. Though color and painting are her first loves, she feels compelled to work with reclaimed objects, found and reconfigured sticks and anything else that the “muses” suggest.
There is undoubtedly a rich narrative aura around Mirto’s artwork. Some of the sculptures manifest as quirky creatures and characters that seemed to have stepped out of a fable or folktale, other pieces read like enigmatic visual poems. Mirto earned a BFA in painting at Massachusetts College of Art.
Mirto lives in Marin, California and keeps a studio at ArtWorks Downtown in San Rafael.
