I typically build a sculpture from a small model. I start with collections of wood blocks, plug in my hot-glue gun, and playfully put together a form. Sometimes I grab the perfect combination of blocks and the sculpture seemingly builds itself, and other times the blocks get thrown back into the scrap bin. Later, I may snap pieces off my discarded models to fit onto new ones.
Physicality, deliberation, and repetition characterize the sculpture of R. Elliott Katz. His work depicts the natural world in tension with the needs of people, and juxtaposes the finely crafted object with down-home subject matter and materials. Nonument to the Paysage presents an unremarkable rural scene in monumental form.
