An exhibition showcasing the work of this contemporary, cutting-edge sculptor.

In the Floor by Tory FairFeaturing sculpture, wall reliefs and drawings, Works by Tory Fair confronts the viewer with questions about the real and the imagined by incorporating life-sized, fantastical sculptures of human forms haloed by incredibly detailed flowers—all which appear to be sinking into the floor or walls.

Inspired by her childhood spent on a 200-year old farm, the flowers in Fair’s work represent ideas and their potential, evoking a feeling of mystery and anticipation.  This collection calls to mind concepts of nature, space, borders and looking beyond oneself to explore growth and emotions and is a surprising step away from the expected.
