Details
This solo exhibition presents a number of Ferris’ recent sculptures and preparatory works, including several drawings and a 3-D model. The larger-than life sculptures, of people the artist knows, are constructed out of reclaimed wood and pigmented glue. Ferris’ visually compelling work, complete with richly colorful surfaces, are heavily influenced by his Lebanese heritage and specifically two inlaid Middle Eastern backgammon tables that were in his Chicago childhood home.
