The Hole’s current show is amazing showing 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. Having surfed most of my life, I was very disappointed when I couldn’t come to the opening. 

The thunderous force of the ocean is apparent in these jagged and misshapen “wrecktangles”, but 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.

For information on available works please contact Kathy Grayson: kathy@theholenyc.com

The Hole is open for business: Tuesday – Saturday, 12 – 7pm.

The gallery is located at 312 Bowery NYC NY 10012 between Bleecker and Houston streets. The closest train stations are Bleecker Street 6 train, and Broadway-Lafayette B, D, F, and M trains.
