Text by Claudia Schmuckli, Russell Ferguson.
Bottles aligned on shelves or suspended in the air, jars of marbles and dye-filled tubes: form, substance and structure emerge from deceptively humble means in the sculpture of Tony Feher. His work uses gravity, light and repetition to isolate and animate everyday objects, creating a sculptural territory that Feher can rightfully claim as entirely his own. Published in conjunction with a major retrospective exhibition organized by the Blaffer Art Museum, this is the first publication to explore work from throughout the artistís significant and influential career. This comprehensive book reproduces his many sculptures, site-specific installations and two-dimensional works and includes major new texts on Feherís practice from Blaffer Director Claudia Schmuckli and curator and writer Russell Ferguson. Superbly realized by renowned New York design studio Matsumoto Incorporated, this publication is the definitive book on the work of a vanguard American artist.

FROM THE BOOK
"People are looking all the time, but I donít think theyíre seeing anything. And I think thatís not true just with a piece of art thatís in front of them, but in a larger cultural sense.
Our lives are shrouded in myths and superstition and prejudice. If you can accept a soda bottle with condensation on the inside as a work of art, then maybe thatís a way of seeing a broader picture, or of seeing the world from a different point of view."
óTony Feher, quoted by Claudia Schmuckli, director of the Blaffer Art Museum, in her essay, " An Uncommon Archeology Of A (Not So) Common Man," reproduced in Tony Fehrer.
