Artist Tony Matelli presents a minimal but charged sculptural installation at the Real Estate Fine Art gallery in New York City. The works include two weeds and a dirty mirror. As far as first impressions go, the curated room is definitely puzzling to the audience. However, Tony Matelli's exceptionally minimalist artwork carries more meaning than its inaugural visual perception would suggest.
The work is "naturally blended into [the] space" of the gallery. The theme, the forms and the positioning of the sculptural installation put into question curatorial practices, as well as the evolving dynamics within exhibition spaces. Tony Matelli's work also has exceptional merit, when it comes to "recreating reality in classic materials." For the weeds, the artist used bronze, while the mirror is coated with enamel.
