Sean Foley: Ruse is on view at MASS MoCA through December 31, 2011.

Sean Foley’s new work Ruse occupies the over 100-foot long wall outside of the Hunter Center for the Performing Arts. Foley found the distorted, disproportionately long and narrow space appealing for a new work; in it viewers can never quite take in a singular image all at once, and instead are left to put the pieces together in their minds, to turn glimpses into a whole. Ruse begins with ideas of camouflage, a topic that has filtered into the artist’s work in the past.


A graduate from the Herron School of Art in Indianapolis, Foley earned an MFA from The Ohio State University. He has had solo showings throughout the United States.
