Lora Reynolds Gallery is pleased to announce an exhibition of sculptures and works on paper by New York based artist, Tony Feher in our Project Room from October 21st to November 27, 2010.
Collecting and cultivating the beauty in everyday objects, Tony Feher infuses cast-off detritus with playful light and whimsy. His sculptures are comprised of carefully chosen plastic bottles, marbles, netting, boxes and other similar urban artifacts. They become animated with Feher's clever use of color, repetition and various juxtapositions often in response to a specific architectural space.
Feher will display a dynamic grouping of works including ‘Singer of Many,' 31 glass bottles with screw caps, water, and food coloring aligned on a painted wooden shelf, which collectively addresses traditional elements such as line, shape, volume and color in a contemporary and whimsical way. ‘Pink Hole,' an unfolded, glitter encrusted reincarnation of a three-dimensional French fry box, reinforces Feher's distinct ability to pull to the forefront the beauty and potential of the commonplace.
Tony Feher was born in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and received his BA from the University of Texas, Austin. He currently lives and works in New York and has exhibited in numerous institutions including the UCLA Hammer Museum, Los Angeles, The Center for Curatorial Studies, Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York, the Serpentine Gallery, London, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago among others. In addition, Arthouse at the Jones Center has commissioned a new work including a constellation of hundreds of water bottles suspended from their second floor gallery ceiling in honor of the grand reopening taking place October 21-24. The public is invited to a reception on Thursday, October 21st from 6-8 pm. The artist will be in attendance.
