First Amendment Gallery
Opening Reception – June 8th 7-10pm
Showing Through – June 28th
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE – First Amendment Gallery is pleased to announce, “Potholes,” a new solo exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist, Henry Fey. Fey’s latest collection of works incorporate acrylic painting and image transfers of the artist’s photographs in an engaging installation of twenty-four 8×10 inch pieces, a departure from his previously exhibited large-scale paintings.
For “Potholes,” Fey uses his signature blend of digital and analog processes to simulate a visual journey of a casual ride through a cityscape. Individually, the works recall innocuous colors and textures that seamlessly flow into another to then be punctuated by abrupt darkness – a pothole that only disrupts your journey momentarily before sending you back on track. Collectively, these examinations recontextualize familiar forms with the framed works acting as windows into particular moments of that ride.
Henry Fey (b. 1993) is an artist and San Francisco Art Institute alum living and working in Los Angeles. Using painting as a tool, he draws from his surroundings and recontextualizes images through abstraction.
First Amendment Gallery invites you to join us for the opening reception of “Potholes” on Saturday June 8th from 7-10pm at 1000 Howard St. San Francisco. For further inquiries on the artist or available works, please contact email@example.com.
