In October of 2011, Tony Feher created a series of "abstract paintings" for an exhibition at the Museo de los Pintores Oaxaquenos, Oaxaca, Mexico. Using torn pieces of blue painters tape applied directly to large glass windows, Feher employs geometric and star burst patterns that call to mind antique mosaics and criss crossed brushstrokes. The gradation of light filtering through the windows over the course of the day infuses the space with an ever-changing ethereal blue glow. In an attempt to fix an aspect of the work usually reserved for the site-specific viewer, the artist has selected three of his photographic detail images to be rendered as a series of prints. These archival works are released in honor of the monograph Tony Feher published by Gregory Miller & Co. and the touring 20 year survey exhibition of the same name organized by Claudia Schmuckli, Director and Chief Curator of the Blaffer Museum, University of Houston.

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.
