The Lil Red Shack Gallery is proud to present new works by Boston artist, Fritz Westman. This body of work transforms traditionally non-art materials into explorations of light on a physical and conceptual level. Seemingly mundane materials, such as pushpins, road paint, and photocopies are manipulated into sensuous objects. These materials are altered not only by their recontextualization into high art mediums but also by the obsessive control of the materials and light.
Fritz Westman has a degree from The Museum of Fine Arts with an emphasis in sculpture. He is currently a teaching assistant in the sculpture department at Harvard University. He has shown at Gallery NAGA Boston, The Museum of Fine Arts Boston, Gallery at the Piano Factory Boston, and Warde-Nasse Gallery New York. Westman will be giving a figurative sculpture workshop in conjunction with the show, on the evenings of May 22nd and 23rd. For more information contact us @ 206-621-7807 or email@example.com.
