Mitch Gobel is an Australian visual artist best known for his abstract resin works. Creating alongside his wife Sally Mustang much of the pair’s most recent work explores visual representations of their love, relating strongly to sex and many aspects of what they experience emotionally, spiritually and physically throughout their relationship.
Gobel has been creating with a broad range of materials including resin since 2012. His approach to the art is free flowing and intuitive, a process that involves a varied display of colours and textures, creating an illusion of multiple layers and dimensions.
