Occasionally it’s necessary to take a hard look in the mirror and reckon with the crisp, odd reflection. This can be funny, startling, utterly bizarre, or if we’re lucky, all three. In his uncanny sculptures and paintings, Tony Matelli routinely traffics in all three. Think of the confusion, wonder, and shock caused by his 2014 sculpture of an underwear-clad man in mid-slumbering stroll, Sleepwalker, installed first by the Davis Museum at Wellesley College and then to great fanfare on The High Line, New York.

Sculptures of a lone weed (Weed, 2020) sprung from an unlikely seam; a trio of boy scouts tragically, spatially ill and discombobulated (Lost and Sick, 1996); nude humans perched on their heads, anatomy solidly in defiance of gravity (Figure 1 and Figure 2, both 2015) a weather-beaten classical sculpture carefully balancing watermelons (Hera (bronze), 2020, acquired and on view in the NGV Triennial 2020). Matelli uses the language of realism to provoke questions about the very nature of reality. Some works seem so present that they lift off out of art, as when his public sculpture Stray Dog (2014), was seemingly dognapped and found abandoned shortly thereafter. His most recent works have focused on creating human-made versions of organic objects and containers. Now we wonder not just about people, but about the things that constitute our lives. As Matelli’s scope increases, so does the reality he creates. It’s a universe of objects in service to ideas.

Tony Matelli has presented solo exhibitions internationally, including at the 8th Moscow Biennale of Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia; The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum, Ridgefield, CT; Davis Museum, Wellesley College; ARoS Aarhus Kunstmuseum, Aarhus, Denmark; Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes, Bilbao, Spain. His work is in collections including: AkzoNobel Art Foundation, Netherlands; ARKEN Museum of Modern Art, Ishøj, Denmark; Bergen Art Museum, Bergen, Norway; Bonnier Collection, Stockholm, Sweden; CCA Andratx, Mallorca, Spain; CURIOUSLY STRONG Altoids Collection, (New Museum) New York, NY; The Cultural Foundation Ekaterina, Moscow, Russia; Cranbrook Art Museum, Bloomfield Hills, MI; Fundación La Caixa, Madrid, Spain; FRAC Bordeaux, France; Magasin 3 Stockholm Konsthall, Stockholm, Sweden; MIT List Visual Arts Center, Cambridge, MA; Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montréal, Montreal, Canada; Museum Ludwig, Cologne, Germany; Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, Wellington, New Zealand; Philbrook Museum of Art, Tulsa, OK; State National Centre of Contemporary Art, Moscow, Russia.
