HUDSON, NEW YORK – 24 Jul, 2017 – Art House Hudson presents the exhibition and artist Tery Fugate-Wilcox “It’s Time” now, through September 4, 2017. Featuring a collection commissioned by the late Steve Jobs, “The Steves” along with other Actual Art collections including: “Don’t Leaf Me Alone” and “Slow Burn”.
Tery is a National Endowment for the Arts laureate with creations found in collections at the Smithsonian Institution, the National Gallery of Australia, NYC Parks, and museums such as the Museum of Modern Art and The Guggenheim.
Time and decay, mortal enemies of most artists, are Tery Fugate-Wilcox’s partner’s in creation. Subscribing to the natural-process post-minimalist (Actual Art) Tery Fugate-Wilcox’s partners philosophy, Tery’s pieces are literally abstract works in progress, employing weathering, rainfall evidence, oxidation or other impacts of nature to interact with and affect the artistic outcome.
Art House Hudson gallery owner Christene Selleck says, “Tery and I had been working within blocks of each other for close to 20 to 30 years without crossing paths or meeting. For years I often looked at the work he created that was all around Soho and often wondered, ‘What is that and why is it there?’ Who knew years later that we would be working on various shows, creating large banks of work and multi-media projects together.”
Tery’s approach to the “It’s Time” exhibition, “Nascent Art examines the point at which an object becomes a work of art. Actual Artists do not finish works of art; they only start them. Then the works leave the artists’ hands and go out into the world to be ‘finished’ by weather, dust, oxidation, temperature, humidity, human and/or animal interaction or simply time, as the inner structure of the materials change or interact with each other. At some point, during that evolution, the materials become a work of art…on their own…without the artist’s intervention.”
Art House Hudson will be showcasing Tery Fugate-Wilcox’s exhibition through September 4, at the gallery located at 99 3rd Street, Hudson, NY 12533.
“The Steves” In 1984 Tery was commissioned by Steve Jobs to create the first series of computer-generated art. These works are the first generation of what we today call computer graphics. Although presented as a multi-toned installation, each piece stands on its own.
“Don’t Leaf Me Alone” offers the suggestion of the triumph of substance over style. As the superficial glitz of gold is inevitably diminished and tarnished by time, the authenticity of the natural world is revealed in the form of a gold, copper and silver leaf.
“Slow Burn” is an assembly of 60 pieces of paper collected once a month over five years. Viewed daily, the aging process craftily appears averted. Viewed years later, we are not only witnesses to the time line of the paper’s now obvious deterioration, but perhaps, to be faced with the reoccurring shock of our own mortality.
