PHOTOS: 'Sensory Disintegration' at Orange Town Hall

The mixed media artwork of David Katz is on display and we've taken pics of a few pieces. What do you think of his work?

If the art on display at Orange Town Hall makes you stop and take a closer look, that's exactly what the artist wants.

The work of David Katz, the artist whose mixed media is on exhibit now through the month of February, is eye-catching and thought-provoking.

Here's what David says about his work, in a document available at Town Hall:

"What stories lay buried in the cast-off objects of contemporary existence? I construct visual narratives from the overlooked and forgotten artifacts of post-industrial life. My work examines human sensory experience — flesh and blood bodies confronting a highly mechanized and digitized landscape. Along the way, I explore the interplay between ordinary and extraordinary, organic and synthetic, sacred and profane. I like to think of the creative process as performing a sort of intepretive archeology of the flotsam and jetsom of modern life."

The pieces on display are for sale and range in price from $35 to $275. For more information, visit David's website, www.sensorydisintegration.com, or get in touch with him via email at katz.db@gmail.com

The exhibit at The Gallery at Town Hall, 617 Orange Center Road, is sponsored by the Orange Arts & Culture Council.

Very cool - I like the idea of re-purposing items for art. And to all the artists out there, you can contact the library about displaying your artwork too.
