Gareth Lichty’s sculptural practice consists of physically manipulating materials such as garden hose, construction fence, field marking tape, polypropylene rope and galvanized wire. Lichty’s work explores mass-production and manufacturing processes using ubiquitous materials reimagined as large-scale structures. He creates organic structures through repetition, materiality, and scale while contrasting the vernacular of suburban infrastructure with industrial architecture. His process manifests thousands of hours of careful and sustained labour weaving, cutting, and tying materials into monumental representations of repetition and excess.

For Warp and Weft, Lichty is building a loom system that weaves brightly colored, reflective field marking tape around and through the gallery space. The neon colored field tape, typically used to mark a path or trail through nature, becomes hyper-energized within the white industrial space of Buffalo Arts Studio’s gallery. His process creates both visual and physical disruptions amplified by observable vibrations caused by visitors in the space. Both the material and the scale of Lichty’s work challenge the cultural marginalization of weaving while also rejecting its utility. 

Gareth Lichty (born London, Ontario, 1980) is a sculptor working with excessive amounts of handmade or manufactured units to create large-scale installations dealing with the internal and external architecture of space. He received his MFA from SUNY Buffalo (2016) and his Honours BFA at York University (2004) in Toronto and Sculpture at Leeds University (2002) in England. He has exhibited internationally with exhibitions in Europe, New Zealand, China, USA, and Canada. Lichty lives and works in Buffalo, New York.
