Using torn pieces of blue painter's tape applied directly to large glass windows, the artist employs geometric and starburst patterns that call to mind antique mosaics and criss-crossed brushstrokes. In an attempt to fix an aspect of the work usually reserved for the site-specific viewer, Tony Feher has selected three of his photographic details to be rendered as a series of prints. The prints are available for at www.artspace.com.
