Our Members

Michael Mersinis is an artist whose work revolves around the utopian imaginary and the sense of place. Using photography’s elusive relationship with reality and its indexical qualities, his work superimposes the projected qualities of places with the real, mainly through the mediums of photography and sculpture.
