Artist Tony Matelli is recognized for a deft sense of the uncanny in his disquieting, comical, and provocative sculptures that incorporate elements of life out of context, challenging the expectations of viewers. Frequently focusing on themes of time, ambivalence, banality, and wonder, Matelli has stated, “I like sculpture because it’s unwieldy, and there is a resistance to decoration in sculpture that I like. . . . Genres are at the service of ideas, not the other way around.” For Tuesday Evenings, Matelli presents the development of his work, from early influences and the importance of representation, figuration, and narrative to the increasing significance of abstraction and distance.
