Feheley Fine Arts was thrilled to present Michael Massie’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, Michael Massie: Stories in Silver & Stone, in November 2022. The exhibition featured a selection of 11 never-before-seen works including the artist’s signature silver teapots, and narrative-driven stone works. From sleek, angular silhouettes, to delicate creatures modeled from reality, Massie’s sculptures transcend the conventional limits of Inuit art and design.
In this artist talk, Massie discusses the stories and inspiration behind works in the show – each entirely unique, no two the same. In many works, the artist revisited themes of balance, movement, caricature, and memories of his childhood with renewed force. Masterfully, Massie incorporates his signature plethora of rare woods and materials including sterling silver, bone, brass, moose hair, and anhydrite stone in his whimsical sculptures.
