Arcady Kotler uses a variety of materials and techniques to investigate the connection between text, script, writing, and sculpture. As Kotler says in his artist statement, ‘...I witness an emergence of the primordial script into a strongly pronounced quality of form... This turns my creative process into sculpting rather than writing. My script is sculpted, not written.”
The exhibit will showcase several of his installations, drawings, and sculptures.
