In November 2022, Feheley Fine Arts was thrilled to present Michael Massie’s first solo exhibition at the gallery, Michael Massie: Stories in Silver & Stone. Massie’s work is unlike that of any artist. From sleek, angular silhouettes, to delicate creatures modeled from reality, his sculptures transcend the conventional limits of Inuit art and design. We were proud to showcase Massie’s 100th Teapot in 2021, and almost two years later, the gallery was honoured to present a selection of never-before-seen works, in Massie’s first solo exhibition at Feheley Fine Arts.
This latest body of work marks a continuation in Massie’s refined practice. Impacted in 2020 by the Covid-19 pandemic, which resulted in increased time spent in his studio and bouts of isolation, Massie has revisited themes of balance, movement, caricature, and memories of his childhood with renewed force. During this time, Massie’s studio practice was forced to evolve. Selected works incorporate his signature plethora of rare woods and materials including sterling silver, bone, brass, moose hair, and anhydrite stone, among many others.
