For the first time, FAD Market partners with The Invisible Dog Art Center to co-present Wood and Wool, a solo exhibition showcasing Abraham McNally.
The site-specific installation by the notable Brooklyn-based artist opens conversations between past, present and place. The exhibition features some of McNally’s most recent work, made this summer while visiting his childhood home, a Christmas tree farm in Northern Vermont. Materials were sourced from the immediate environment – the wood came from poplar logs, cut and milled with a chainsaw on the farm’s overgrown pastures; raw sheep fleece was collected from a local farm; and fabric was salvaged from worn out clothing, many from his children’s younger years. The human-scale sculptures offers the audience a personal visceral encounter as the bodies of the sculptures are juxtaposed against the body of the viewer.
McNally who also lectures at Parsons School of Design said: “I am very excited about the opportunity to share this body of recent sculptures with a wide audience outside of a gallery context. People can engage with the work spontaneously as a part of their day.”
