“The compositions of my works seem to intuit themselves. The beauty of the work is that the materials I use provide the clues as to what they want to become. There is a dynamic moment in the making where the elements play with each other until they find that still place. It's the juxtaposition of these intuitive and organic forces, combined with the formal characteristics of composition, that informs the work.” — Ferris McGuinty

About the Artist

Ferris mcguinty

Ferris McGuinty (b. 1978) is an artist whose work carries across a varying field of output, from sculpture and assemblage to furniture and lighting. His work primarily explores the relationship between material, form, and balance. Composition and spatial relationships are of a central concern to the artist. The scale of the works attempt to allow the viewer intimate access and in turn provides them with a pure aesthetic experience. Without a specific reference point, the works investigate line, color, texture, shape, and volume, all of which are imbued with a sense of poetic timelessness. The works seem more to summon a mood as opposed to a message.

Read Full Bio

In a world now saturated with the “Hi Tech,” his work instead subverts this approach, and calls upon the use of humble materials—stone; wire; wood. Their ordinary and unpretentious qualities draw upon a certain kind of beauty. Carefully poised and delicately balanced, they offer a reflection of the fragility of the world that surrounds us.
