 Past Exhibition

Eric Fertman: Here's Your Hat, What's Your Hurry?

February 3–July 28, 2012

Kemper Museum

see current exhibition gallery see upcoming exhibitions    

With the skillful hand of a woodworker and the collaged imagery of a cartoonist, Eric Fertman creates sculptures that evoke works by artists Philip Guston and Martin Puryear as well as drawings that suggest the urban grit of cartoonist R. Crumb. The Brooklyn-based artist embraces humor and whimsy and juxtaposes exaggerated bulbous "feet" with delicate and slender elements in his abstracted sculptures. This was the first solo museum exhibition for the Boston native who earned his BFA from Cooper Union in 1997.
