Sculptor Tony Feher explores the malleability of everyday objects and found materials, reinventing these items by reshaping and injecting them with a post-minimalist aesthetic. In the works featured in AK Café, Feher calls attention to a ubiquitous aspect of consumerist society—packaging. With what might be considered an unsculptural approach, he “unpacks” packaging by turning each container into a flat object that takes on the qualities of a painting when washed in Feher’s luxurious, monochromatic color palette. By calling attention to often unnoticed elements in the world around us, Feher beckons the viewer to be more observant and appreciate the beauty in things, no matter how mundane they may seem.
