Hank Feeley

                 

           

     

           

     


"If Hank Feeley were not so strikingly original, I would say that he stands at the intersection of Magritte and Marvel Comics, but as it is, he has his own way of disorienting the viewer so we can see again, now with our perception refreshed." That's a quote from Billy Collins... A well-known admirer of Feeley's work. Needless to say.... we agree! His work is so original and out-there that you often feel that you have stumbled into another dimension. He takes license to reorder and re-contextualize the world of images to present not the accepted logical arrangement, but rather an aesthetically provocative re-arrangement. Feeley's sources are endless: signs and symbols of contemporary culture, art history and literature, myth and legend, and even doodles. In other words, whatever he can draw on to throw open the gates of our perception.
