Tony Feher makes use of generally overlooked and discarded common objects, often in a serial manner that highlights their formal qualities and imbues them with personal meaning. His careful consideration transforms and re-contextualizes these items into unique works of art. Roberta Smith writes in The New York Times, “Mr. Feher is a poet but also an engineer of the everyday….” Concurrent to his studio work, Feher also engages site-determined, architecturally-based installations that are often of large-scale. His recent commissions include a public artwork for the Federal Courthouse in Rockford, Illinois and The Hudson (Show) Room at Artpace in San Antonio.
The Blaffer Museum of Art, Houston has organized a twenty-year survey of Feher’s work, which will first open at the Des Moines Art Center in the Spring of 2012 and will subsequently travel to several major institutions over the next two years. Tony Feher’s work is represented in numerous public and private collections. Tony Feher is represented in New York by The Pace Gallery, Lucien Terras, Inc. and D’Amelio Gallery.
