Vincent Fecteau

With their incongruous forms, unnerving color schemes and various other unsettling elements, Fecteau's meticulously made sculptures belie the many formal decisions made by the artist in completing each work. Working slowly, he produces a small number of sculptures every few years and very often, the deadlines imposed by exhibition schedules are the only way he is able to justify calling the works "finished." He has said of his working process, "I like to work on a group of pieces all at the same time, spending long periods just staring at things and trying to activate or access a feeling that somehow relates to what I'm trying to make. …When I'm open to things but not fixed on an objective is when I'm most likely to discover a connection that helps a piece feel more resolved."
