Joe Fyfe
American, b. 1952
Follow

Joe Fyfe repurposes found materials like kites, signs, and banners to reveal the poetic beauty within overlooked everyday objects. Recalling works by Joseph Beuys, Robert Rauschenberg, and the style of Arte Povera, Fyfe culls from daily refuse, especially that of impoverished areas in Southeast Asia. Fyfe’s works document regional transitions and globalization through his selected materials. Operating in the space between painting, sculpture, and architecture, Fyfe’s artworks are deliberately nonrepresentational, allowing materials to dictate form and come together on their own, rather than adhere to a preconceived artist’s vision. Fyfe is best known for his fabric-based works, which emphasize color and shape, and reveal the artist’s hand through glue lines and puckering. Selected for their individual qualities, Fyfe’s found objects are presented as-is but in a new configuration, such that they appear brand new.
