American artist Vincent Fecteau has, over the last two decades, forged a singular aesthetic that mixes homespun materials (Popsicle sticks, champagne corks, string, and the like), meticulous craftwork, and a curious formal grammar. By turns wonky, erotic, extraterrestrial, or baroque—and sometimes all of these at once—his sculptures are built from small, slow accumulations in which layering, texture, and the work of the hand are all visible. His exhibition “You Have Did the Right Thing When You Put That Skylight In” is on display at the Kunsthalle Basel from June 18–August 23, 2015.
