Things fall out of the sky, appear out of nowhere, are found and lost, regained and reformed. In Feehily’s work the made, painted, found, pinned, pieced together and reassembled are all elements brought to the table. A man balances the seemingly impossible, the simplest things turn out to be rather special. Rare earth elements are that, rare here but common-place elsewhere.
