Lyons Wier Gallery will be featuring a solo presentation with ceramic artist Michael Boroneic at the Sculpture Objects Functional Art and Design (SOFA) Fair in Chicago. SOFA is the premier gallery-presented art fair dedicated to three-dimensional art and design. On par with Art Basel and TEFAF Maastricht, SOFA has continuously run since 1994. What distinguishes SOFA from other top art events is its focus on three-dimensional artworks that cross the boundaries of fine art, decorative art and design. SOFA is noted for its exceptional presentation, with an elite selection of international dealers presenting for sale one-of-a-kind masterworks.
“Force Field” features a selection of bold, thought-provoking pieces, the majority created by using old paint and discarded paintings. Gortner started working with “found paintings” — obtained through thrift stores, friends and art schools — almost 20 years ago.
He discovered that if he fastened them together, added new paint and elements and used various techniques, he could create an entirely new piece. It doesn’t hurt that he learned carpentry from his father. “Regardless of what they look like, because they are paint and they are on canvas,” he said, “I can transform them in various ways to make them look totally different than the way they did.”
