Timelines: Tony Matelli

Overview
Full of technical feats and imaginative leaps, the works showcase an evolving, open-ended quest to, as he says, “reweird” ordinary life—to discover the uncanny life of familiar objects and scenarios.

The exhibition presents the results of Tony Matelli’s ongoing search for the magic in trompe-l’oeil realism. It features garden-store and cemetery sculptures bedecked with lifelike fruits, vegetables, and other foodstuffs as well as exacting recreations of grimy, graffitied mirrors. Full of technical feats and imaginative leaps, the works showcase an evolving, open-ended quest to, as he says, “reweird” ordinary life—to discover the uncanny life of familiar objects and scenarios.
