About

Prelude 82 & 100 (Black and White Sculpture of Piglet Perched on a Pedestal) by Paul Katz Plaster, sand, & paint on found object Prelude #82 (Pedestal) measures 7.5 x 4 x 4 inches Prelude #110 (Pig) measures 3 x 6 x 2 inches Charming sculpture of a little pig perched on a small pedestal! Paul Katz coats various found objects with plaster, sand and white paint. He then hand paints the surface area in small black letters the text from the poet William Wordsworth's "PRELUDE". Artist's statement: These works are part of an extensive series of objects and paintings that embody William Wordsworth's "Prelude." The look of the work was inspired in part by a photograph I saw in the New York Times in the days following 9/11. It was of an office in which everything was covered by grey ash so that ordinary things like desks and computers took on the aspect of an ancient site exhumed. As I have worked on my "Prelude" project I have come increasingly able to see it as something as nearly post-apocalyptic as that photograph but with culture, itself, in the form of poetry settling like ash over everything. The dense patterns of lines and letters that cover all my surfaces make the actual poem impossible to read but I feel that I honor it, nevertheless, through an act of penitential diligence. The Prelude or, Growth of a Poet's Mind; An Autobiographical Poem is an autobiographical poem in blank verse by the English poet William Wordsworth.[1] Intended as the introduction to the more philosophical poem The Recluse, which Wordsworth never finished, The Prelude is an extremely personal work and reveals many details of Wordsworth's life. The Prelude was the product of a lifetime: for the last part of his life Wordsworth had been "polishing the style and qualifying some of its radical statements about the divine sufficiency of the human mind in its communion with nature"
