Untitled (TPe 119), 2016
Acrylic on paper

Tony Pedemonte constructs armatures of wood and recycled materials that he then wraps in layers of yarn and thread until the structure is nearly concealed. Like his sculptures, his works on paper begin with a drawn figure that he obscures with frenzied mark making and sweeping gestures that cover his workspace and reach beyond the paper’s edge. Pedemonte is a recipient of the 2021 Wynn Newhouse Award.
