Russ Thayer at The Sculpture Ranch

RUSS THAYER

To me, it isn't the role of Art to embody the cultural moment. It is Art's challenge to reflect the moment in the mirror of history, to articulate a context in which the moment can be seen for what it is within the larger panorama of life and the state of civilization. This isn't to say that artifacts should be essays or exercises in didacticism. The artifact should be a seemingly organic evocation of the artist's depth and breadth of awareness. It should be a testament to the quality of that awareness and the artist's ability to keep what is, and has been, fundamentally important to humanity a part of our consciousness.
In addition to working with stone, wood, and clay, Russ Thayer has written books, and continues to write.
