Tory Fair’s Dramatic Figurative Sculptures

by Jane KenoyerPosted on

Boston-based sculptor Tory Fair creates dramatic figures that immediately bring our attention to perception. Her figurative works are made up of fiberglass, aluminum, and wax. The solid colors of her forms create visually striking contrasts when placed in a gallery’s white space. Her installations have an even stronger visual impact when she places them in landscaped urban environments. According to Flair these installations are an expression of the “gap between the real and imagined and what is physical and what is felt.” Flair was influenced early on by the work of Paul McCarthy, specifically the famous performance piece where he plastered his head and arm into a wall.
