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.
