Tony Pedemonte

He makes abstract drawings, rarely limited by the paper’s edge, incorporating his surrounding, Tony would use whatever objects were nearby, including other artists’ paints, windows, and other random materials within reach. He then shifted to three-dimensional work that contains obsessively wrapped sculptures.

His first construction consisted of crumpling up his drawings and using cardboard scraps and a stray spool of thread to wrap them together. Tony now works with wooden armatures or repurposed items like bicycle wheels, wrapping with one spool of thread after another until the structural frame is nearly concealed. Distinguished by their smooth texture, a monochromatic palette, and geometrically-driven configurations, Tony’s sculptures exude a presence that is both tactile and enigmatic.
