Tony May, 'The T.House Maquette' 1983.

 

Tony May, The T.House Maquette, 1983. Acrylic on panel, 8 x 8 inches.

Tony May is the subject of a solo exhibition at the New Museum Los Gatos, CA, opening Friday, February 5.

 

Views of the T.House will comprise a series of paintings by May from the early 1990s documenting the construction and development of his ambitious site-specific installation, the T.House, which currently lives on the artist’s San Jose property. These paintings exemplify May's attention to detail as well as the precision of his craftsmanship, evident in the constructions depicted. Also opening in February as part of the museum’s series ‘In the Artist’s Studio’ will be a selection of ephemera chronicling the making of May’s ‘Variable Book Construction (Bookmobile),’ 1991-95. Objects will include personal photographs, documents, tools, as well as a maquette of the sculpture, which is in the permanent collection of the San Jose Museum of Art, California.
