A Human Echo looks at the work of New York–based artist Tony Matelli (born 1971) from the past 15 years. Matelli’s art has developed from macabre sculpture to quieter interpretations of his urban surroundings through installation.

Glass of Water provides an overview of Tony Matelli’s sculpture of the past ten years, from his extraordinary (and sometimes scary) hyperrealistic sculptures of monkeys in combat and maimed humans to precarious stacks of cards and beer cans, or simpler works such as the titular piece, a comedic-sculptural expression of optimism.

Two pieces by Tony Matelli face off in a mute dialogue: his darkly hilarious sculpture of a phlegmatic one-legged monkey on a crutch impaled by every possible piercing tool (sword, arrow, spear, scissors, dart, and even shovel), and a fake tree on a hooked rug. Drawings and studio shots take you further into Matelli's practice.
Published by Walther König, Köln. Essay by Lisa Fischman. Foreword by Toby Kamps.
A kind of bemused, moralistic fascination with the absurd and troubling aspects of everyday life informs the hyperrealistic sculptural work of Tony Matelli. Using different combinations of paint, resin, PVC and polyurethane, he strands a lone seeing-eye dog on a city corner, plants weeds and flowers in a gallery floor, poses a sleepwalker in his tighty whities, conjoins a severely emaciated, life-size African couple, and bathes two kissing seals in a pool of oil.
