Tony Feher Bio

About The Artist

Tony Feher came to prominence in the 1990s, inspired by the generation of minimalists that preceded him. Using materials in new ways, Feher turned his attention to the sculptural qualities of the everyday. Taking advantage of the generally overlooked and discarded, he highlights their formal qualities while simultaneously imbuing them with personal meaning. His careful consideration transforms and re-contextualizes these items into unique works of art. The artist's embrace of fragility, transience and emotion, along with his preference for non-precious, commonly available materials and found objects, has been highly influential with a younger generation of artists who have similarly decided to become archivists of their own lives and personal journeys. Concurrent to his studio work, Feher also engages site-determined, architecturally-based installations that are often of large-scale.

His recent commissions include the Ulrich Museum of Art, Wichita, KS, a public artwork for the Federal Courthouse in Rockford, Illinois and The Hudson (Show) Room at Artpace in San Antonio. A twenty-year survey of his work has been organized by the Blaffer Art Museum, Houston. Opening first at the Des Moines Art Center in the Spring of 2012, the exhibition moves to Houston in October of 2012 and subsequently to the deCordova Sculpture Park and Museum, Lincoln, MA, terminating at the Bronx Museum for the arts in the fall of 2013.
