Burlington City Arts

R. Elliott Katz

R. Elliott Katz’s work grows out of a practice based on physicality, deliberation, and repetition, and his work represents the natural world in tension with the needs of people. At The Barn, Elliott crafted a series of synthetic tree trunks in mirror-finished fiberglass and resin. The sculpture was exhibited in Stockbridge, Massachusetts and is currently on view at the Maltex Building in Burlington, Vermont. He also began a series of cast plastic motor oil containers that enshrined political figures related to the oil crisis as well as scenes from oil-dependant Americana. That piece was exhibited at the BCA Center in Burlington, Vermont.
