Event Description
Michael Ferris Jr.: The Bronx Series and Other Work
Feb. 7 - May 12, 2012
Reception: Mon., Mar. 19 from 6-8 p.m. Michael Ferris’ intensely patterned figurative sculptures are portraits based on actual people. This exhibition features recent sculpture, working drawings, and includes his new “Bronx Series" based on people in the Morris Park neighborhood, where he has lived and worked for the last seven years.
Ferris’ visually stunning sculpture is known for elaborate geometric patterning inspired by Middle Eastern inlaid gaming tables, a tradition connected to his Lebanese heritage. Ferris shapes small pieces of wood that are applied to the larger wooden surface, something like mosaics, in an overall pattern covering every inch of the surface. His approach to the figure is classical and embraces realism while his surfaces offer a counterpoint of geometry and color that animates the figure and hints at the persona within. The exhibition also includes working drawings that offer a window on his process from conception to three-dimensional form.
