face to face

October 24, 2011

In high school, Atlanta native Kimmy Cantrell’s clay work wowed his art teacher.

Despite his early interest in art, Cantrell pursued the practical over his passion. He studied business administration and went to work in distribution management.

Years later, Cantrell returned to clay and has worked as an artist since 1994.

In his College Park studio, Cantrell creates fresh takes on three recurring themes: faces, nudes and fragmented still-life subjects, such as melons, fish and flowers.

The largely self-taught artist also tells stories in his vibrantly colored, asymmetrical pieces.

He manipulates the shape and position of the eyes in his signature faces to express emotion — or draws on childhood memories, such as fishing or gardening with his grandmother, in his still-life work.

His “Ceramic and Metal Mask” (pictured) is $4,500. It measures 36 inches by 13 inches. See more of Cantrell’s sculpture and framed work at
