“My dolls. I sew them, put on the hands, stuff it. A pillow, my doll.”
Dominic Tufo was born in 1945. He lives in Revere, Massachusetts and has been attending Gateway Arts since 1994. Tufo enjoys process based art making including both three and two dimensional works. Tufos sculptures vary from soft weavings and embroidered forms, to wrapped metals and painted wood assemblages. His paintings are much more gestural and impromptu the fluidity of paint allows him to create colorfield imagery, while his drawings are focused and allow Tufo to create more of a structured composition.
Tufo’s work has been shown at the Gateway Gallery in Brookline, the New England Outsider Artists with Disabilities Exhibition in Boston, Barney’s NY in Boston and Chestnut Hill, the Federal Reserve Bank Gallery in Boston, The Fuller Craft Museum in Brockton, MA, and the Margaret Bodell Gallery in New York, NY. He has also shown in the Goldhaber-Fend Fine Arts Center Gallery in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.
Tufo received an award for Excellence from the Ebensburg Center in Pennsylvania, a MENCAP award from London, England, and at the 6th National Juried Art Exhibition for People with Learning Disabilities.
