Stephen Friedman Gallery is proud to present Brazilian artist Tonico Lemos Auad's third solo exhibition at the gallery.

About

The artist continues his long-standing exploration of traditional craft by investigating themes of architecture, landscape and human interaction. Through everyday materials such as linen, wool, stone and wood, the viewer is treated to a series of new textile reliefs, sculptures and site-specific installations.

Auad's unique way of working subverts traditional techniques such as stitch work, woodcarving and stonemasonry and opens up new possibilities in drawing, weaving, sculpture and installation. One can immediately recognise his work for its extraordinary deftness of touch and the way it bridges the modern and contemporary. Through collaborations with a range of specialised makers, Auad explores the crossover between craft, skill, tradition and cultural inheritance.

On the occasion of the exhibition the first monograph of the artist's career to date will be launched
