PRESS RELEASE:

The Hole Gallery is very proud to present six major new works by surf legend and artist Herbie Fletcher in the main gallery at 312 Bowery. These artworks are massive and vital, like the huge waves this artist was known for pioneering during his fifty-year plus career as a surfer. These pieces are made from the wave-munched fragments of broken boards actually used when surfing giant waves. The thunderous force of the ocean is apparent in these jagged and mishapen “wrecktangles.” Perhaps the most eye-catching component is the various decals, traction pads, fins or logos that show both the personalization of each board and the sponsorship and awards circuits of pro surfing. The combination of the odd formal geometries of a late Frank Stella with the pop cacophony of logos and images, makes for a very interesting work of art that is charged with energy and life.

The Hole is located at 312 Bowery, NYC NY 10012

212 466 1100

Open from 12-7pm, Tuesday through Saturday
