The Fletcher Family : A Lifetime in Surf
Jul 25 - Aug 30 2019
Gagosian will install artworks from four different series by Herbie Fletcher. Fletcher’s Wrecktangles are large sculptures made from once-perfect, custom surfboards. In his Blood Water paintings, Fletcher uses mineral-rich earth from the Waimea River, Hawaii. In his Connecting to the Earth paintings, Fletcher affixes found objects from the Hawaiian shores. Alongside these works will be an installation of ephemera—including photographs, posters, sketches, maps, surf magazines, boards, and memorabilia—accumulated from the family’s life of surfing. Opening Reception: Thu, Jul 25, 6-8pm.
