Paul Katz
Prelude No. 89 (Black and White Plaster and Found Object Relief Sculpture)

$1,100

About

Plaster, sand, & paint on found objects 11 x 10 x 3 inches Base is pictured separately from sculpture but is included This black and white hanging relief sculpture was created by Hudson Valley-based artist Paul Katz, whose process involves coating found objects in plaster, sand, & paint. The inscription which coats the surface in rings is lifted 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.
