Marilyn Mazin Miller is a contemporary sculptor and installation artist whose work ranges from representational to abstract.
Mazin’s desire is that through her work, viewers experience the warmth and beauty of nature - the smoothness and curvaceousness of the human body, the plant world, and the animal kingdom. Working with various materials, including clay, bronze, and stainless steel, she is fascinated with movement, rhythm, and fluidity. Her work exudes sensuality, strength, warmth, and humor.
Prior to becoming a sculptor, Mazin studied Early Childhood Education at New York University while concurrently developing her ceramics practice and jewelry construction and design; these 3D media experiences continue to inform her current work as a sculptor. In 2018, born out of frustration at watching families separated at borders, Mazin created her first installation, ‘The Cage Project for Inmigration Reform’. The experience has inspired her to continue to combine visual arts with her dedication toward championing social justice.
Mazin has studied with master craftspeople in New York and Italy, including Ron Mineo. Her work has been shown at venues such as the Viridian Gallery, the Grounds for Sculpture, and the Katonah Museum of Art. Mazin’s work is in many private collections. She is a native of Louisville, KY, and was reared in an artistic home, inspired and influenced by her mother, Bernice Mazin, an accomplished painter in her own right.
