An installation of QCA member, Robert Schatz sculptural pieces, exhibited last year at the Sheldon Museum, will be included in the upcoming three-person exhibition After, running May 1st through June 24th at Curious Matter in Jersey City, NJ. The opening reception will be held on Sunday, May 1st from 3-6pm.
Curated by Arthur Bruso, the exhibit also features the work of Vincent Como and Raymond Mingst, and explores, in the words of the curator, “the acceptance of the transitory."
"Robert Schatz freezes motion with his three dimensional drawings. With his Small Structure series, he has twisted a length of twine into poetry, freezing the looping material in the air. Taking his cues from Asian calligraphy, Schatz writes in space. Using the fragile materials jute twine and rice paper, Schatz manipulates his ethereal sculptures into a form of transitory solidity. Their meaning changes as the viewer moves around them, or as the light moves among them. Like Cy Twombly drawings, they have secrets to tell that seem just out of the reach of our grasp, but hold our attention as we try to decipher them.”
