FAILE - ORIGINAL PIECES ON WOOD
Item Details
Description
FAILE Original Pieces On Wood.

FAILE Original 2x2x2 Cubes (4 TOTAL).

Acrylic paint and silkscreen on wood cubes.

Printed and painted on one side of each cube as pictured.


This piece was part of large artwork Tower built by Faile and auctioned off in 2010. The collector who purchased the Tower broke up and sold the individual wood art pieces as hundreds of separate lots. This original Faile piece is one of those lots.


FAILE (Pronounced "fail") is a Brooklyn-based artistic collaboration between Patrick McNeil (born 1975) and Patrick Miller (born 1976). Since its inception in 1999, FAILE has been known for a wide-ranging multimedia practice recognizable for its explorations of duality through a fragmented style of appropriation and collage.


While painting and printmaking remain central to their approach, over the past decade FAILE has adapted its signature mass culture-driven iconography to an array of materials and techniques, from wooden boxes and window pallets to more traditional canvas, prints, sculptures, stencils, installation, and prayer wheels. FAILE's work is constructed from found visual imagery, and blurs the line between "high" and "low" culture, but recent exhibitions demonstrate an emphasis on audience participation, a critique of consumerism, and the incorporation of religious media, architecture, and site-specific/archival research into their work.
