Tony Feher, American sculptor, Died at 60


Tony Feher was born in 1956, in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and died on June 24, 2016.

He was an American sculptor.

Tony was raised in Corpus Christi, Texas.

Tony Feher received a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Texas at Austin, in 1978.

Tony Feher started exhibiting fine art in 1980 and had his first solo show at Wooster Gardens in 1994, and shortly thereafter was reviewed favorably by Roberta Smith in a short article titled “Three Artists Who Favor Chaos:” “Tony Feher’s chaos is actually rather well-organized and instinctively archival and devotional.”

From that time, notable solo exhibitions of his work have taken place at Diverseworks in Houston; Sikkema Jenkins & Co., Pace Gallery, and D’Amelio Terras in New York; ACME in Los Angeles; Anthony Meier Fine Arts in San Francisco; and The Suburban in Oak Park, Illinois.

After moving to New York in the 1980s, Tony contracted AIDS.

Feher’s work was occasionally associated with the ephemeral and fleeting nature of life as an HIV-positive man.

He died due to cancer-related complications.

Tony Feher passed away at 60 years old.
