New Mexico Showcase
Santa Fe New Mexican, Pasatiempo, March 9, 2012:
"Other works that caught my attention..."Topos Installation", an ensemble of colorful stoneware pieces By Mario Quilles.
Topos Installation has a wonderful sense of playfulness, with its jumble of seven stoneware pieces atop a short, makeshift bench covered in black felt. The dark support activates the taffy-colored, cone-shaped objects in a way that recalls the fanciful mushroom dance in Disney's animated feature Fantasia. Quilles' textured surfaces, employing pockmarks,protruding nebs, and wavy lines,heighten the effect of the pieces' toylike quality." reviewed by Douglas Fairfield,
