Nathan Prouty
Hot Spots and Rocks

January 22 - February 28, 2011


Prouty's sensitivity and skill as a maker are clear
in every piece. Drawing upon a remarkably wide
scope of historical and contemporary imagery, he
infuses his works with layers of meaning. Intimate
both in scale and subject matter, the sculpture
is intensely disarming and demanding of the viewer.

Writes Prouty:"As an artist, I see my role as cocktail
party host: I introduce the viewer to the work then
gracefully remove myself, leaving them talking
while I make sure we are not running out of party
Come see the sculpture of this young maker
who is quickly establishing himself as an artist
to watch.
