Totem to Helios by AMLgMATD/ Laz Ojalde & Natalie Zlamalova (ArtCenter/South Florida) AMLgMTD is the collaborative team of artists/designers Laz Ojalde and Natalie Zlamalova. AMLgMATD combines Zlamalova’s geometric abstract forms and Ojalde’s functional and aesthetic ideals. Ojalde is a mixed media artist whose inspiration comes from the love of the everyday object; the mundane, the functional, the gimmicky to the refined. Zlamalova is a mixed media artist who explores the crossroads between the states of being asleep and awake—the hypnagogic state. Her ink washes are illogical and coincidental and contrast her hand-constructed geometric lines and patterns—the logical and the premeditated.
