About the Artwork
Though perhaps best known for his portraits, Katz has consistently painted the natural world throughout his career, particularly over the past decade.
"These days I start painting in the morning and paint throughout the day. It starts with an idea of what I think art should be. Then I find something that correlates with it outside of me; if it’s an action or something like that I’ll make pen and ink sketches; if it’s something like a landscape then I go from the sketch to a cartoon which I paint directly on to the canvass. "
These beautiful aquatints, which reveal Katz’s control of material and clarity of vision, come together with six poetry sheets with poems by John Godfrey in both English and Italian translations in a precious portfolio. Katz explores the themes of nature, perception, the passage of time, poetry, and contemporary notions of the sublime in this poetic suite, whose subjects are based on a selection of the artist collages from the 1950's.
